    Default IPA Meeting in Dallas

    The IPA meeting had a small, but pretty impressive crowd. There were pretty fab phals displayed and sold. Here is a sampler for you--sorry, I didn't write down the names. DUH!

    Last four . . . One is of Susan Lin of Brother Orchids and I. The other are the plants that followed me home.

    Here's the list of the plants I couldn't leave behind:

    Flasks:
    P. Tai-I Yellow Bird x Dtps. (New Candy x Snow Leopard) -- Lg Yellow Harlequin
    P. Diamond Beauty x Dtps. Sogo Beach--Lg. Orange (yes orange) harlequin
    P. Salu Peoker x Dtps Leopard Prince -- Orange with stripes and/or spots
    P. Tai-I Yellow Bird x P. Timothy Christopher-- yellow harlequin
    P. Diamond Beauty x Dtps Sogo Smith

    Yes, yes, I know--you are saying holy crow, five flasks, but come one when am I EVER going to be able to get flasks from Taiwan.

    Seedlings:
    Phal. Jungo Joyce 'OK Select'
    Dtps. Sunrise Star x PHal Tying Shin Cupid
    Dtps Pride of Ben Yu 'Ben Yu'--mericlone
    Phal. Sogo Laurence x Tying Shin Golden Apple

    Yeah, so my self control was not exactly functioning. I would have purchased some blue violaceas as well, but I already ordered some of those mail order last year!

    I really enjoyed the symposium and learned lots at the various seminars. And it was OBVIOUSLY quite dangerous to let me loose in a room with so many incredible vendors!

    Wow, looks like you are going to have phals everywhere! Those flasks are ready for community pots - maybe individual pot. They look great!

    Cheers,

    Killer smile, Sadie!

    Nice plants too. Looks like you had a great time. Alas, I didn't go because I thought all that would be available would have been Phals. I see at least one gorgeous blue vanda
