    Thanks, Eric! We will be at POE again this year. It's a wonderful show, and it's such fun to meet people we have online contact with in person!

    Give me money!

    Right now it's not possible to maintain a website as well as the eBay store.
    We just don't have the staff to keep up. As soon as we can manage it, we certainly will. Many of our eBay listings are buy-it-now, even though auctions are more numerous. We also entertain offers, so don't hesitate to make them.

    Hi, Folks! Just a note to let you know we're thinking of you and want you to know that we are now going to be open for walk-in visitors on weekends from 11 to 3. Sometimes we will be at a show, but for the most part we will welcome visits during the midday on weekends. We are working hard on a new website and doing lots of eBay sales as well as having Open House as often as we can. We love meeting and helping our customers and having you visit, even if it is to work out the problems you might be having with a plant. Meanwhile, for those of you far away, we have our Facebook page, The Tiny Jungle. Happy Summer!!

    Doings at The Tiny Jungle AKA LetsTalkPlants

    Well, as you can see, I've been busy and haven't had time to post here for a long time! I miss you guys, the camaraderie, and all the pics!
    My business partner, Tony Wells, does the eBay selling and that is going quite well. We have many species and some hybrids of many genera now, so my orchid life has become really exciting!
    We no longer will be doing shows, since we really can't do both eBay and shows. There are only two of us, so we had to make a choice.
    We do welcome visitors, though, and are open by appointment. Our open hours for walk ins are noon to 5 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. We do prefer advance notice, so that we can give you more personal attention.
    Fridays are often spray days, so call or text the day before to see what's up.
    My phone number is 415-307-4742 and I welcome texts. Tony is at 415-623-4079. We are also at thetinyjungle@gmail.com, but the texts will catch us first.

    I'll update your description Chris. Glad to see you back; hadn't heard from you in a while despite my annual emails to see if you were still interested in having a forum.
