    I am more than willing to carry on mature conversation. I was just unsure whether we should be straying so far from the original topic of conversation. We are after all Jacking Swords' thread. I see now that you are a mod, if you wish to continue, then continue we shall.

    Id like to clarify that my statement was not meant imply I felt a lack of respect on your part.

    Oh and by the way their are sources of chemical free beef.
    There was actually a large barbeque dowtown Minneapolis this summer on the missisipi, nothing but hormone, antibiotic free, free range Beef!
    It was great!
    I will tell though I dont eat alot of red meat in general my stomach doesnt deal too well with it. Ulcer.
    I love fish though, and theres plenty to be had in MN.

    Peace

    Is there a huge difference between eating beef raised on a farm, with chemicals, and buying posies raised on a farm, with chemicals? Sure, the former is a necessity of life, but who wants a barren back yard with no petunias or impatients anyways?

    I'm sure every steak you buy isn't from 'organic' stock either... I maybe wrong of course... Even if it was, how safe is it's manure that leeches into water? Man put these cattle there to poop. Without man, they wouldn't be poopin there, and there wouldn't be manure leeching into streams and things... That, if I'm correct, is too, a pollutant...

    You are correct that runoff from livestock is a contaminant.
    Yes you are correct that at one time im sure i have consumed steak that was not entirely "organic". Not conciously.

    Im not entirely against farm production, its the chemicals and procedures that are in use that cause the damage. Widespread acceptance and general lack of knowledge of health risks is also frightening.

    Cancer rates among cigarette smokers would decrease nearly 50% if farmers would simply stop using fertilizers that derived P from rock phosphate also known as calcium phospahte.

    Heres some Links.

    Hi folks,

    I'll have my new lowland terrarium setup with netting on back & sides for mounted orchids but I would like to know what some orchid genus suggestions might be for this environment:

    320-400 watts flourescent light
    70-90*F temps
    80%+ humidity

    The orchids do not have to be "miniature" or small (the tank is 6 X 6 X 3) but they will have to be mountable on orchid bark, driftwood, hydro logs or whatever and hung at the edges of these lights (they wouldn't be under the full blast of the lights as the Nepenthes will be there). I was just wondering if you orchid experts might have some suggestions on warm growing plants I could look into to decorate the walls. I already have a few Bulbophyllums to go in but am I limited to Bulbophyllums and Phalenopsis?[/QUOTE]
    What the...? I'd say we've strayed a little (no cattle pun intended).
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    I don't mind the straying topic, it's interesting reading.

    BTW I found a place to order a Bulbophyllym beccarii that will be an awesome plant! The flowers are fine too from what I'e seen in photos but I love that tree growing mushroom look of the leaves. I hear that the flowers smell like rotting meat but is it only if you put your nose to it like other bulbos or will it reek up the house?
