Default Greetings fellow orchid lovers



I found this board accidentally when I'd googled a question related to mottled oncidium leaves...

I'm relatively new to orchids - bought my first phal about 3 years ago. I have 20 orchids now - 10 of them are phals; 2 dendrobiums, 3 miltoniopsis ( including one hanging on by a thread), a zygo, a paph, a cymbidium, and an oncidium (yes sharry baby) and some kind of mini catt. I've had a few victims but not too many...

I'm enjoying the challenge.

I do have at least 150+ other houseplants (thus the screen name) so I basically live in a jungle.

I'm recently retired and probably older than all the rest of you LOL.

From the little browsing I've done here, this looks like a wonderful resource~! Glad I found you.

Welcome aboard.

If you’re “recently retired” many of us are likely older.

Welcome to the Orchid Board from a another old retired woman! I'm envious of anyone who has the space for that many houseplants.
