    Default Tamiami Orchid Show

    We are back from our two week vacation in Florida. Had a great time and the weather was perfect. While there I was able to attend the Tamiami Orchid Show and Sale. What a fantastic show. There were not as many exhibits as I expected but what were there were beautiful with exceptional orchids on display. There were lots of vendors with top quality orchids which i will share in a separate post. The pics in this post is just of the exhibits.

    Default Vendors at the Tamiami Orchid Show

    I could not believe the number of vendors and the quality of the orchids they offered for sale. I am still in shock over the prices. They were almost giving them away! Phals in bloom from $10 to $40. The $40 ones were two and three plants to a pot and each plant multi-spiked. Blooming size catts in pots started at $8.00. Many of the vendors offered discounts if you bought two or more plants. I left with 13 orchids--several that I have been searching for for a long time. Best part is I got them for way under the budget I had set for myself. My purchases averaged out at around $10 each. I will post pics of them later.
