OP, consider, perhaps, letting us know what it is you saw/heard/read that motivated starting the topic.

These days, a lot of people with PhDs are educated beyond their level of intelligence and wisdom, but we don't have anyone like that here, that I know of.

@OrcishOrchids Your rewriting is top, and I think it will be very helpful to new members.
I am not sorry you bring the subject up, it is a good point.

BTW, what's the purple flower mean?

If stupid opinions and responses weren't allowed, French people wouldn't have much to say.
Oh, wait.

One thing I learned about orchid forums and taking advice is to learn the conditions under which the one giving advice grows their orchids. I did very well with orchids for many years and then I discovered orchid forums and began to read...eventually joining...eventually posting. In the early years, so many of the professionals had greenhouses or grew in warmer climates and I didn't realize this and began to think, even though my orchids were doing fine, that I could do even better. I followed their advice and directions for growing. None of them were from the same climate and growing in a window. Opps. Not the best strategy. I try to be clear about being from Ohio, now, so that people who are in different climates can look for someone else to give them advice. Ohio has its own set of special challenges.

Just to be clear...I am not a pro. The advice I give is based on my mistakes and what I learned from them...based on living here in Ohio. I don't want others to make the same mistakes I have made.

Ok, since no one has directly addressed the question, what DO the flowers under username signify? WW? Camille?
