Whitney, For the first time in this community, a persons rude remarks have prompted me to express my profound regret for having offered -- free of charge -- a valuable plant from my personal collection, to a new member. In the future, I will be far less likely to extend any such generosity to someone I do not have a relationship history with.
My conditions are indoor and controlled so it doesn't matter where I'm at. Jesus. I joined this site for advice from more experienced plant keepers not *****s like yourself. Thanks. I will be deleting this app now. Have a nice life *****
You have to meet the community at least halfway. There are members of ICPS who have probably been involved with CPs for longer than you have been alive.
Where else is there an opportunity to bring that kind of knowledge to bear--free of cost!!--on your horticultural issues?
From my personal experience, the people that I have met and corresponded with in this hobby--and with plants in general--are some of the nicest, most generous, and most helpful individuals you could ever imagine.
It is shameful to turn your back on all of them on a whim, and furthermore to part ways in such an insulting and demeaning manner.
