Information, empirical and anecdotal! (With all the hundreds of
species out there, there is no point reinventing the wheel.)
Plus, words of advice, and/or encouragement. Plus lots of questions.
Debate e.g., the merits of one parent plant over another.
Speculation & anticipation. Celebration & commiseration.
Sometimes I think we have lost our ability to be amazed. Think about
this for a moment: Never before in human history have
individuals from around the globe, who share nothing but an interest in
a very narrowly defined subject, been able to communicate at will in
(almost) real time, on an unscheduled basis (unlike phone, ham) with no
regard to status or station or expertise!
