Are the most wonderful crowd! I posted a help notice about my minute seedling ( which turned out to be 3 even minuter seedlings) on my 4 orchid forums. I had answers from them all, and a grower who lives 20 miles from me sent me a message to say he had bought from the same source and lost his, but he had some fine bark and to contact him. so I did , and went to collect it today, and he showed me round his 2 greenhouses, and I came away with 3 keikis and a plant! I was over the moon! It just goes to show what lovely people we are! Judi

I've noticed the same thing Judi

The majority of folks I've met and/or spoken to in the orchid world have been wonderful and quite a few have become treasured friends

Orchidboard has been a big part of that happening

I agree! I'm still new here but I have definately appreciated everyones kindness. It really seems like there is a great group of people on here that are nice enough to share their knowledge. Orchid people are the best!

You want to know why? Because Orchid People have learned to give away the excess and that leaves room for new acquisitions

Sarah, I have a Milt. Bert Fields 'Eileen', AM/AOS that's yours for free if you drive over to pick it up. It's headed for compost heap otherwise. It's a biggy (8" pot) and just started to send out new growths. I have no room.

Ross, I would love it! How nice to offer! I have really been wanting to try one of those too. I will talk to the other half about when would be a good time to go over there and I will let you know. Like I said before, I do go over there to go shopping quite often so I'm sure I can work something out. Thank you!

Hi

It seems to me that the majority of the people that loves orchids tend to have a certain attitude towards live.

Perhaps because sometimes we have to wait years to see the fruits of our labor?!

Or maybe the ones that endure tend to be similar in attitude?!

Ross your a kind man, didn't I say I was in Mich

It's amazing the characteristics of orchid lovers it's a sense of calmness with internal energy...I know I know calm and energy in the same sentence is an oxymorron
