    I hope you enjoyed the flowers. I brought home only one plant...a phalaenopsis that I will post separately. I'd been looking for an Orchid World phal...this one was a very nice one. I also may go back for one of the orange cattleya. It was in the back and shaped very unusual. I should have grabbed it...lol.

    All are fabulous! Can't pick a favorite but some of those phals are breath-taking. Thanks for taking us along. Now how many went home with you? I was at an orchid show this past weekend and only bought one. After the cheap prices in Florida I couldn't pay the inflated prices they were asking in Maryland. The one I did buy is really Natalie's fault and I am sending her a bill for it. LOL

    I really only bought one. I think it had something to do with the 3 days it took to move everything out of the greenhouse. I went out today after I got back and worked on removing scale from a few plants and am glad I held off. I have enough work to do now...besides...there is this sale I want to go to this weekend. (shhhh)

    Looked like a very worthwhile outing. Thanks for bringing us along, and I applaud your self-control in allowing just one to follow you home!
    Best,

    Very nice browsing area Connie, I could waste some time in there. I saw about 5 plants I could have quite easily taken away. Is the place expensive ??

    Not by my standards...and i'm usually a cheap skate. lol I rarely spend more than 35 dollars on a single plant...my large Aerides was an exception, I think I spent 45 or 50 on that one. Usually I spend around 10-20 dollars per plant.
