    Hello everyone. I'm not new, but figured I would add my installment. My name is Josh, and I work in a hospital as a surgical tech on the night shift. Just in case anyone was wondering why I post at all hours of the night! Yes I am the one who gives the Dr the knife when he asks for it or the scissors or whatever. I am in school to be a nurse. I just have 2 classes left then I get to start nursing school.

    The bulk of my collection is orchids, and I am into either large plants or strange "different" flowers. I have some mini orchids too, and they are growing on me. I was introduced to the forums by Kirk (Kirkcostalcarnivours). He popped over to the orchid source one day and wanted to do some trading of CPs for orchids. So I indulged him, and he lead me here. I have been here ever since. I actually visit here more than I visit there now. I am expanding my collection of CPs thanks to JBL, and other members.

    My plans are to start an Orchid nursery in the future after I become a nurse to fund it. No more debt for me!! (hopefully) I truly enjoy Terra forums, and I am so glad Kirk pointed the way here. I have learned so much, and everyone is so generous. I try to return the favor when I can, and hope to do more in the future after my collection gets to a size that I can take devisions and seeds.

    My grow list is incomplete at the moment, but I don't have many more Cps than what is on the list so far. After I get off my lazy butt and have the time I will finish it and start on my orchid grow list to add there too.

    I just have one suggestion for the site. I think we should have a dedicated photo forum. Maybe for each different genus or groups like the discussion forums but for pictures. Hopefully this would encourage more photo sharing since I just LOVE looking at the different plants and things. I know we get photo sharing now, but its hit or miss. Sometimes I just want to pop on and see pictures. Since we can't upload to the site, but have to pipe it from other sites the pictures we wouldn't have to worry about a photo archive like on the orchid source. There the mods have to archive the photo threads and remove all the conversation posts and just leave the stuff posted by the topic starts to conserve space. Since they get so many photos posted to share their orchid pictures. Other than that this site is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I have learned so much from everyone here.


    Thanks everyone!!

    Mornin', Josh -
    Judging by the number of posts listed in your profile, it's inappropriate for me to welcome you, but I'd like to say it's nice to see another Southerner on the boards. (I have a dream, in the back of my head, of someday having a regional cps)
    At any rate, enjoy your cps, your orchids and your nursing career.

    ^More southerners here than you think.

    Oh and JB_OrchidGuy rocks!! I've recieved plants from him before and they were awsome! I am kinda the opposite because I started with CP's and now I'm getting into Orchids. Lets hope you can start up that nursery, if so then I'll have to make a trip out there to see it ( I have family in Ga )

    Hi! Orchid man, I don't know much about all this, but glad you are here anyway. Maybe I can figure out how to raise these plants someday. Just don't know enough!

    Bugweed are you talking about not knowing enough about orchids or CPs? Because if your talking about CPs man you have to be kidding me! I have learned a lot from you, and your knowledge is invaluable to the board along with many other folks as well. Thanks for being here.

    Thanks Copcar! You don't have to wait till I have a nursery to come by and see the greenhouse. Just let me know when your going to be in Ga and we could set something up. Maybe take a trip to Carter and Holmes one of the days your in town. There are a couple of orchid nurseries around. Carter and Holmes is about an hour and a half away, and then there is live oaks in Savannah I have never been to their green house(s), but I have ordered from them before. There are a couple in Atlanta too. I want to specialize in the things I like, but of course have things that are in demand too. Not everyone likes the stinky bulbos or the wasp looking gongoras.

    Yes Setup I am not a new person to the board, but I never made my post here. Yes it is nice to know there are southerners around. I was just going through it last night and decided to give folks a little background. I never payed much attention to this section till the other day. Just trying to get a little more involved.

    Hey Josh, nice to "meet" you! I once had the notion of becomeing a nurse (many, many moons ago ). However, my first semester of pre-nursing quickly disabused me of that idea. I had this problem with memorizing all the bones, tissue types, and so on. I decided it wasn't my cup of tea no matter how appealing the idea had been to start with. My hats off to you for being able to stick with it!
