Hey guys new to the forum

Hey everyone as some of you may know i reside in michigan, but am getting a new assignment in Massachusetts! To start a little bit about me. I was an extensive collector and grower of cacti, rare tropicals, CP's and orchids but sadly my apartment lost power last winter and froze everything to death except 2 cacti. roughly over $5g worth of stuff. But now I am getting back into the scene of propagation and collection of CP's. I hold two degrees in plant and soil science but i am still learning everyday. so i hope theres a good amount of you in the NE that i can trade/ get stuff from :-D

feel free to ask questions
