Greetings from Southern California! My name is Julia and I am a student at UCLA. I grow slipper orchids, paphiopedilums and phragmipediums, cacti, and up until last summer had a fairly substantial collection of pings, cephs, and N. ampullaria. Unfortunately, I entrusted them to a friend while I left and they all died. I couldn't even look at any CPs until last week when I ran across a P. moranensis at the store and remembered just how much I missed them. So here I am, starting at square 1. It's frustrating because the plants that I treasured most, my P. laueana and cephs seem impossiable to find. I'm planning to attend the next Los Angeles Carnivorous Plant Society meeting, so hopefully I can get some help there too. Any how, nice meeting everyone, it's good to share a passion with people.
Here are some of my orchids:
