Hi!

I'm Teri, and I currently reside in Washington state. I am an undergrad student on the fast track to Ph.D. in medical anthropology; however, my next degree will be a minor in ethnobotany. I started collecting orchids just 5 years ago, so I am relatively new in the hobby. Surprisingly and fortunately, I've only ever killed a phal and an oncidium seedling; no other orchid casualties yet! I have partially converted my study into an orchid conservatory with a subtropical climate, and I add to my collection as often as I can find something incredible on sale (which isn't as often as any of us would like).
Since I live in Washington, and the number of species that could survive here are far and few between, I am sad to say I do not yet have a greenhouse setup or orchid garden. Still talking the fiance into moving somewhere warmer!

But enough about me; my primary interests are paphiopedilum, cymbidium, oncidium and anything entirely off-the-wall strange. I also run an online curated topical and exotic plant shop, but I won't be sharing that here. However, I will say that my carnivorous plant collection is probably more expansive than my orchid collection!

Does anyone have a favorite paph that I might be missing out on? Nice to meet you all!

Hi Teri,
wellcome to Slippertalk from Austria!
I hope you will show us your green study...
Medical anthropology is rather interesting, what is the title of your PhD?

Welcome from a neighbor on Whidbey Island. Have you joined a local orchid society yet?

Hello, and thank you!
I have not! I'm not a part of any social media (this is as close as I get) so I don't really see a lot of local orchid happenings around here. I also live in an area that's on the lower end of the population scale, so not many people around me share the same hobby.
