Hi! I've registered and been reading today, after seeing that the Board was back online. Seems like a very useful place and lots of nice folks from all over!

Last winter my son and d-in-law gave me an orchid, Bllra. Big Shot 'Hilo Sparkle'. I'd post a picture but looks like I have to have five posts to do that!

I've been growing plants since I got my first one in 5th grade, taking home a fibrous begonia from school at the end of the year, but I was gardening outside before that. Now that I have my first orchid, it's a whole new world!

(EDIT - actually it appears I can post - so there is a thread in the potting section with pics!)

Welcome! Yes, there are nice people from all over and it's a great hobby! I hope you can find a few more orchids that you like to join your Bllra.

Hello & Welcome!

I've not been discouraged or disappointed since my joining in the beginning of this year. Everyone has been nice and extremely helpful. My collection and knowledge as blossomed (pun intended). I think you will find yourself with more than one Orchid in no time with plenty of questions to follow and i suspect they'll all get answered here!

Cheers to your new plants!
