    Hello Orchid lovers! I'm a new member who joined a year ago; kind of a delayed introduction here.

    It all started in 1999 with a single Phalaenopsis. Now I've got a half-dozen Phrags (soon to be 3 more) plus two Paphs and assorted other orchids, for a total of 30 altogether. I grow them in windows, and my orchids summer outdoors.

    I'm enjoying the forum and look forward to learning more about orchids. A never-ending education!

    Welcome to Slippertalk, Patricia! You are right about orchids being a never-ending education.
    You have a nice start on a collection, and it will grow as you stay here, as we are great enablers! :evil:

    Never fear. You'll have a Phrag. blooming soon. It's still
    winter up your way, isn't it?

    Heh heh! We had a hummingbird sighting in a nearby suburb yesterday, so I'm hopeful that winter is history. My Cymbidiums have been outside most all of the past week, which is another good sign.
