>plants over the last 65 years, starting with orchids (don't do that any
>more) Major growing interest is growing and hybridizng aril
>irises,(starting about 30 years ago), and have this new interest in aroids

A year ago I was as well, now I have far more than I dreamed possible in
such a short time <BIG grin>. They really grow on you!!
I am an iris lover myself, plus numerous other bits and pieces as you'll
see in my signature at the bottom of my emails. I collect far too much and
far too broadly. I am actually trying to remember whether I have ever
introduced myself to this list properly. Does anyone remember? I have a
vague feeling I never have. I think I lurked for a little while at the
beginning, then launched in with questions.
There are people on this list from all over the world, all collecting the
same things. There is a great amount of knowledge here, you just have to
ask the right questions.
Again, welcome to the AEG.
