    Just a suggestion--Since many of us including myself have mislabeled or unidentified plants and need help from fellow members from time to time, we should have a sub-forum for ID Help. What do you guys think?

    I think this would be a good idea if we start getting a lot more posts, but when I am posting something I don't have an ID for, I am also posting it for people to see even if they don't have a clue.

    Marni, I believe people will post more for ID help if we have a sub-forum for it. When we post ID thread at the photo forum, it normally will go down to page two in a day or two, so it will be lost forever and get no result in many cases.

    you think that works better than posting to the new to orchids or the culture section?

    I never thought to put my unidentified posts in the new to orchids or the culture section. They don't seem to quite fit there.

    This is the only forum I belong to, so I don't know if there are problems with having too many sub-groups.
