Hello! I've always been an orchid aficionado, and
started growing them in earnest up here in NYC about 8 months ago.
The Orchid Board led me here, and I've been buying CPs over the past month or so.
Of course I had my odd Venus Flytrap sold in a little plastic box when I was a kid, but like most
they all turned black within a few months. This is my first serious attempt at growing them.
Although I have plenty of artificially lighted space for my orchids, surprisingly NYC is in a zone (7b) that most of the CPs like, so they can spend all year outside. I don't have any private outside area, but my co-op building has a rooftop that hardly anyone uses and I can
put a bunch of plants up there. The only problem I've run into so far is the wind, I need to get some bricks or something!
So, see you around the forum.
