Default Hello from SWLA...

...that's SouthWest Louisiana, USA. Found your board while searching for info on helping a damaged Vanda. I live close to the gulf coast so have a good climate for growing some orchids on the deck.
I learned what little I know as a member of a local AOS club many years ago, but I'm always looking to expand my knowledge.
Any questions? I'm an open book.

Thank you sir. Yes, we are in the process of rebuilding our interior. The plants were in the garage and survived unscathed. It ain't over yet!

I wanted to try to post a few pics to see if I had permission now that I have a few posts. This is my very few and unnamed orchids.



Nothing posted so I guess you'll just have to go to my gallery. I'll figure this out eventually.
If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Using the attavh a photo button and entering this from the address bar

Welcome Dusty Ol Man. Nice pics. Sure wish I could grow orchids outside, but not to be here in North AL. I am new to orchids so cannot provide guidance, BUT THESE FOLKS ON ORCHID BOARD ARE EXPERTS! They have saved my collection.

Sort of correct, but either missed a step, or made a wrong selection. There are several ways to go about it.

Also, I looked at your pictures. Some are upside down. There's also a way to avoid that. There's a couple of recent threads here about how to upload. I can't find them at the moment, but read through first page of this one that's a sticky:

Tips for posting Photos

I post by uploading to photo gallery, then copy the DIRECT LINK url under the photo and insert into my thread, but there are many ways to go about it. I really like the color on this one of yours...
