You are so right about our 'disease'. I remember going into a nursery
years ago and there was the most beautiful Anthurium splendidum that could
be imagined. I had to have it... It was not for sale. I had the rent
money for the coming month in my pocket... I offered. Fortunately, for
the landlord, the offer was turned down.
If this disease were fatal... I would have been gone a long time ago. I
really think it is the reverse. My neighbor and friend is approaching *90*
and has been active in plants for years and, disregarding the calendar, he
is much *younger* than I am.
I have come to the conclusion that this disease is "a good thing".
