    Oh, God - probably a good thing I'm not anywhere near Tampa today.....just bought a few "consolation" orchids yesterday and I have to go buy a lightmeter today, so the orchid budget is shot for this month! Oh, well, there's always next year......

    Coming right over.

    On the side note, my local OS is holding its annual orchid show this weekend. Although I used to get involved before, I am not excited as much this year so far. I will go to the show, but I may walk out without any plants.

    I totally understand this. The society I belong to has an annual show and the last couple years the orchids for sale have been rather generic and well, only slightly interesting. I need a big show fix. hahaha...

    cheers,

    I wish I could take everyone of the above with me. Nat and I are meeting to walk the rows of vendors. I've got orchid blinders on. I'm looking for tropical fruit, begonias, gesneriads, bromeliads and a Cydista aequinoctiali (garlic vine). The Hoya people will be there and a friend asked me to look for a species for him. Nat told me she is looking for carnivorous plants.
