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. *
