Welcome to branmuffin's Member Page
I used to belong to this site a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, I am unable to sign in, but most will remember me in the Pond Forum (?). I lived in Hayward CA where I used to have a 15,000 gallon koi pond.
Most of my Koi were award winning fish having taken Grand Championships twice and Runner Up GC twice also. I had posted pictures of my pond. Then ... I got interested in Plumerias where I purchased 3 plumeria plants and even a
Greenhouse to try and grow them in. People thought I was nuts to purchase a $2,500 Green house just to grow 3 plants!
So if they thought that was NUTS, here's a new one! I sold the house in Hayward and have moved on to KAUAI! Now I don't have to worry about raising Plumerias! I have them all around me! Would you say I took things to extreme?
Actually, I had planned on retiring to Hawaii all along and the opportunity just presented itself. ...and I LOVE IT!
UPDATE: Jan 2013
I have changed my favorite flowers from Plumerias to Cattleya Orchids. I have about 40 of them all growing nicely under a bunch of Areka Palms.
Most people here can grow Dendrobiums and have difficulty in growing Cattleyas. I seem to have good luck with them. LOL!
