Welcome to Here…But Not—it’s an orchid blog created by me—Dustin, a guy in Canada (…eh).
The backstory to the name “here…but not” is that… I’m often physically present, but not present at all because I have my face stuffed in my phone. I love researching about orchids, discovering new species, pondering possible hybrids, and just generally obsessing about orchids, their care and culture, but it means I’m often distracted and only half paying attention to my friends and family—oops!
This blog is the central point for me to share my knowledge and experience with the world. My goal is to help new growers experience success and knock back naysayers and fad chasers in favor of good, tangible advice. I have personal frustration with bad advice that prevents growers from experiencing success, and because of that I love breaking myths. That’s what this blog is for, to share my findings with you and help keep more orchids alive longer.
