A little personal history: I have just completed a PhD in Physical Chemistry. It was challenging and fun, but it's nice to be done. I am looking at taking a job with a rocket engine manufacturing company, so keep your fingers crossed! I am married and we have three shelter cats that share our home.
Okay, now to the interesting part: I am a greenhouse/terrarium grower in Central Texas. I just love my pleuros, in all of their variety. This last weekend, I attended the Oklahoma Orchid Society's show that was combined with the spring AOS members meeting. I went to the Pleurothallis Alliance meeting, and promptly signed up to be a member! I offer you my list below...not all of them are or have bloomed, yet. There are some that I feel immense relief just to see them make it through the summers down here. Two years ago, my husband built me a humidifier/cooler that kept the greenhouse in the low to mid eighties when outside it was in the triple digits.
I enjoy learning about these little gems and was glad to meet with a bunch of pleuro enthusiasts this weekend. Also, I ended up bringing a couple more home, but they haven't been added to the list, yet! I hope to get know some of you online and, maybe we will meet at a meeting some day.
