Greetings from DC
Default Greetings from DC

Hello! I realize I've been signed up for a almost a year but have never posted in the intro section.

I'm a hobby grower from the Wash., DC area. I like anything with a fragrance. I've been growing cacti for years, but have added orchids into the mix relatively recently. Big fan of Oncidium/Zygopetalum/Catasetum types. Did I mention I like those with fragrances?

Attached is my current obsession: Miltonia Kismet 'Kind Kai'. Absolutely love the way it smells

Welcome.

FWIW I like cacti and orchids too. I find it amusing that there are jungle growing epiphytic cacti that you can treat much like orchids should be treated. My Epiphylum oxypetalum responds well to being potted like a warm growing Phalaenopsis and given light like a Dendrobium Phal type. Sometimes when the sun is hot i use it as a sunscreen for my phals.

I have my Cattleya and Dendrobium seedlings growing underneath my cactus display. Works well when it rains because they get the run off and I don't have to worry about getting the cacti wet when watering the orchids

Hello and welcome! It also took me some time to make a post after joining and it had already taken me some time to join after finding the forum.
