    That is SO cool Diana! LOL I am 28 myself and love talking about these plants. I have not had the oprotunity to talk to many children about these plants. I have had the oprotunity to talk to many of my professors at school about them. There are a couple teenagers in my neighborhood, but non that seem interested in plants. I have thought about offering to talk at the local elementary school, but the thing is I am still in school myself. So I am waiting till I am done with that before extending that offer. I for one get real excited when I start to talk about CPs or Orchids!!!

    I have some business-card sized cards I keep in my wallet. If I see a kid at Lowes or the greenhouse looking interested in the CPs, sometimes I approach them, talk to them about the plants and give them a card which directs them to this forum for growing advice.

    Nothing like proselytizing for CPs.

    That sounds like a good idea. I am getting ready to print up some business cards anyway to direct people to all my websites.
