Welcome, Patricia. It is always fun to read about the results and techniques of growers at different latitudes, which is one of the benefits of this forum. Post photos when you can...we do all enjoy seeing new photos!

Hi everyone,
I'm Zoran (everybody know me as Peja) from Kovin Serbia (now I'm in Budva, Montenegro). I've been growing orchids for almost 3 years. Currently i have about 60 phalaenopsis, 150 dendrobiums and some miltonia and cambrias. I'm germinating some NOID phalaenopsis seeds in flask.

Thanks Peter for allowing me to join the forum.

Hey,
I'm Jesper(araven) from Sweden :mrgreen: , I'm mainly interested in the phalaenopsis cornu-cervi complex, but other phalaenopsis species as well. I have other orchids, but I am trying to keep my interest to phal species as I have limited space. I am using artificial light as the sun is virtually absent during the winter here :(

Hello everyone. The wife and I live in Southwest Louisiana. I have just recently retired (2 months) and looking for things to do with the wife and stay out of her hair. She enjoys the orchid flowers I enjoy the challenge of keeping them healthy and growing. We were growing orchids back in the late 80's and early 90's in our small greenhouse, then moved on to growing and propagating corals in a reef aquarium and when the grand kids came along it was all about them. My garden as my wife calls it consist of 22 phals on my computer desk under led lights. It has surprised me on how many things have changed now and how much knowledge from growing corals under lights has helped us now.

Welcome. You will find a small group of dedicated and friendly Phalaenopsis growers here.

I can relate growing corals under HID lights. I had to give up my corals because I have too many orchids now and not enough time.

Hi group,
I'm Pieter. I live in Belgium and unlike to most other members here, I do not have an impressive orchid collection at home. I work as a Phalaenopsis breeder so my interest in signing up comes from here.

Regards,

Pieter

Hello :)
I'm an orchid grower from Spain, the anti-orchid country in Europe. This means all of my plants come from Germany, but hey can't complain. At least I have the light and warmth they like to grow :D

I started growing orchids in the summer of 2016, and right now I'm around 80 orchids, most of them being Phal species or primary hybrids. I grow them in my room to decent success, considering I can't control light. humidity or temperature too well.

My favourites are those that are very fragrant (I own some plants just because of the scent), specially the blue forms. Ironically, one of my favourite species is Phal speciosa, which is faintly fragrant when it has a scent.

Don't be surprise if you see me around asking if plants are fragrant and how so. Also, if I own an orchid feel free to ask about scent, I have a good nose and I'm quite good at describing them :)
