I 've grown,bred,and exhibited orchids. Although I still maintain a small collection, my interest in plants and their culture has gone in other directions. I now collect dwarf conifers and other uncommon plant types and, I'm pursuing methods of propagation. My facination with plants keeps growing and although my education is in art, and teaching, I cannot resist being drawn to plants and plant biology. I'm pleased to have stumbled upon your site and look forward to learning and, maybe making a contribution.
