    I have been growing orchids for years, and between my office and my home, probably maintain about a hundred fifty plus plants, I grow on windowsills. I am on the computer far more than I like at the office, so getting on the computer at home is sometimes "less than interesting" for me...but I have to admit, I've poked around this website often enough. I love the banter here...and the great advice.

    I am also a natives addict, there are many ways to enjoy the orchid addiction.

    Favorite groups for indoors include: Coelogyne, restrepia (and pleuro-s in general), and encyclia (and all the species they've become...), I also think terrestrials of all sorts are very interesting.

    Looking forward to meeting some of you on-line!

    Welcome, speciosa. Wow, 150 plants is a lot for window sill growing. You say you are a "natives addict" but I don't know where you live. Are you in N. America?

    Yes - I live on Long Island, but am a native of New York City, and still work in New York City. You're right...that's a lot of plants to manage on windowsills, I'm reminded every time I water!

    Thanks for the welcome...
