    Welcome.  What kind of plants do you have?  We have two birds of paradise and various (I think 12-15) carnivorous plants.

    I have three varities of philodendron; two variety of spider plant; a peace lily, a ginger plant, a palm tree, assorted (as in, I lost count and can't remember the types) succulents, an amaryllis, an alligator plant, a bonsai ficus...I'm forgetting some of them, I know, but those are the ones I can remember off the top of my head. I envy you your birds of paradise! I want to try those, but I haven't had a chance to yet.

    Whereabouts in Central PA are you from?  I grew up outside of Philadelphia, moved to the Pittsburgh area in HS and then went to college north of Penn State.
