Hello all, I'm Tom from Birmingham, UK. 17 years old, going to Uni next year to study Botany. Grow an odd bunch of plants; Orchids, carnivorous plants, stapelia, and anything weird looking. Slippers are fast becoming my favourite though, hope to learn the tricks of the trade from you professionals :)

Happy growing,

Tom499

Welcome Tom! (from Central Massachusetts) Sounds like you'll fit right in here! We've quite a few from your neck of the woods, also.

Congratulations regarding your future endeavors! I wish I had started as young.

BTW nice to hear there are some fellow UK'ers here too, I'm having to reach far to find good Paphs which aren't heavily priced. Any tips on where to find the backstreet Paph shops would be hugely appreciated :drool:

I'm surprised you didn't mention Habenaria radiata :p I showed your pictures to OH and he instantly said that we had to get some.

Tom, welcome from..umm..UK :D

Neofinetia are the gateway drug to Habenaria. By the way, all of the tubers I purchased this year sprouted! It won't be long now until the birds take flight.
