    Hi I'm Mike from Yorkville Illinois I've been growing orchids for over 20 years I studied in horticulture and have worked in the greenhouse industry for a number of years
    I've grown several genera of orchids with a majority of them in the cattleya and bulophyllum family
    I have grow in windowsill gardens under artificial lights and now in a hobby greenhouse experiencing the triumphs and failures of growing orchids and tropical plants in these different environments
    As with many things you never stop
    earning
    It never fails when you start thinking you know everything about growing plants there will be one (or as ln my case) more that will trip you p
    Plants have a way of keeping you humble
    Any way I'm glad to join the group Always interested in exchanging growing ideas and tips
