    A New Old Timer!

    Hi, new to this forum.
    I went to college many years ago for Horticulture, and majored in GreenHouse production.
    I've been hooked on gardening since I grew my first "bean in a Dixie cup" in kindergarden.
    I grew VFTs some 40 years ago when that was about all the CPs available to grow (ordered from comic books!)

    And I now have a renewed fastination with CPs since I discovered all the new CP species & hybrids available. I'm most drawn to Neps, Heli's and Sar. plants.
    I'm so glad to be here, and I'm sure there is much I can learn here also,
    and hopefuly new friendships to be made.

    I'd love to be able to trade for some new plants to expand my meager collection of 4 Neps plants.
    But, about all I have to trade with are cuttings of rooted/leafed Fig trees, cactus pups, and a bunch of common Capensis. Oh! and some seeds of Dutchman’s pipe (Aristolochia macrophylla, syn. A. durior, Zones 5-8
    Many Thanks!
    Dan~

    I think I recently read your post on mites (hope that was you, sorry if i'm mistaken) - It was very informative. Can't wait to read more from you, welcome.

    Welcome Dan! Always good to know another horticulture and CP fan. Many of us have "a few extras" and I'm sure you'll have too many CP's in no time. Welcome to the forum.
