What Got You Here?

For me it was the PBS wiki and BX.  I was always an iris fanatic... and as
time went by I became interested in native irids, like Alophia.  And Google
searches kept bringing me to the PBS wiki, and so when I found out about the
BX I joined up right away.  I certainly wasn't a founding member of PBS, but
I joined pretty early, I think.  Seems like I've seen hundreds of BXes

I wasn't particularly interested in bulbs until joining PBS.  And the
high-falutin' talk on here got me eager to try many new things, like growing
different Polianthes species to cross with my Manfreda virginica), or
growing "new" irids from Australia and New Zealand.

PBS is definitely responsible for getting me hooked!

carnivorous plants)

PS:  I just turned 40.  :-)
