    Hello everyone,
    I've returned to growing paphiopedilums (and a few phrags) after many years. In between, I went from paphs to pleurothallids, to highland nepenthes and heliamphora. I'm still growing the last in a small backyard greenhouse, but paphs and phrags are edging back in on the benches.

    I've been visiting this forum for a few months and decided it was time to introduce myself.

    Everyone keep up the good work. I'm enjoying your posts and learning a lot.

    Best regards,
    Paul

    Thank you. I live in the SF Bay Area, so I'm fortunate to be removed from the tragic fires in the Napa Valley.

    Welcome, Paul! I hope those fires are extinguished soon. What a tragedy!

    Paul, welcome from good old Germany. After you've finished the full circle I hope Paphs and Phrags will stay forever in your GH.
