New member to Orchids Forum but not new to orchids and many other plant genera. I've been mesmerized by plants and flowers since a child wandering around in my Grandmothers garden. It was a kaleidoscope of colors, smells, birds and insects that led me to a lifelong journey of following Alfred Russell Wallace and retracing his expeditions through the Malay Archipelago. I have grown and propagated a wide range of plant genera with a special interest in cactus, plumeria, mesembs, euphorbia, bromeliads, amaryllidaceae, and orchids. Easily, an interest in any of these species is a trip down the 'rabbit hole'. My favorite orchid species tend to be the Brassavola, Cattleya, Dendrobium, Paphiopedilum, Zygopetalum, and Epidendrum. Hope to be getting to know you all and your orchid interests.
