OH, good.  I throw them banana peels once in a while and they seem quite
happy...never knew about all the pitfalls!

We live on the Big Island - Puna area, between Kea'au and Pahoa.  We are
at about 800' so we have the best of all temps but lots of rain.  Since
soil is almost impossible to find and planting involves hours with a
sharp bar prying apart lava, I enjoy growing things in trees...in them,
on them, from them.  Ferns are all around as are the fern trees and I
have planted more...  they are amiable types, don't require a lot of dirt
and love the climate.

I enjoy lurking on the fernet and while most is way over my head...I am
learning, always learning. 

Cheers :)
