Hello everyone

I'm really new to orchids. I've always grown something from saltwater reef tanks to freshwater planted tanks. My new job has me traveling quite a bit and getting my wife to help wasn't going so well.

My wife's mom recently passed and we were given, among many plants, a very pretty Phal noid orchid. I've been mesmerized by its beauty. I've already bought a tiny seedling that is years away from blooming and just ordered a Phal bellina from Peter I'll be picking up later this week.

I just wanted to say hello and hope to grow and learn a lot from y'all!

Welcome! I think everyone here is super envious that you are within 'picking up' range from Peter.

Welcome to the forum, Brian! This is a great place for phalaenopis people (and of course others ;) ) :D

Hi Brian, glad you are so close to Peter to just drop by. You'll learn tons here about growing all kinds of orchids, not just Phals. Be prepared: it's a serious addiction. :)

Hope you don't mind that I've moved this to the Introductions section. :)

Welcome, Brian to this great community. Great people willing to share ideas and solutions.
I live in Corinth, so we are practically neighbors.

Thanks everyone! I just got back from Peter's place. WOW is about all I can say! Absolutely gorgeous greenhouse!

He is also a very nice guy too, very helpful. Answered my questions and told me don't hesitate to contact him with anything.

I feel like I've found a great bunch of folks!

Thanks again!

Welcome, Brian. Peter is a great guy and nothing phony about him except his robotic dog Pylo. LOL
