Scott, I understand that it's hard to buy something that you normally wouldn't. The only reason I'm asking for some level of commitment is that throughout the process, plants are eliminated because for one reason or another it doesn't fit somebody's needs. If we take a plant out of contention and the person we were trying to accommodate then decides they're not happy with the outcome, it creates the question of whether or not we would've chosen that plant if the unhappy member hadn't participated...and then backed out.

I know that it's going to happen, I'm not asking for a contract signed in blood but it would be nice to keep it to a minimum.

Nobody's opinion here is to be considered lame...that's why this is such a great place
By the way, I wouldn't mind considering a great hybrid

Hope to see lots of you along the way

Everybody is welcome to join the project...we'd love to have more countries involved!
Our first project had the U.S. and Australia....and project two has the U.S., Australia and Canada! The only problem becomes the fact that many plants available in one country
aren't so easily accessible to another. It'll be another level of chaos but that's part of the fun

I'm sure we'll figure something out...hope to see you there with us.

I think this would be fun!

It just might turn out that I discover another type of plant that likes me ... and if not, well, I've killed enough that I don't take it so personal anymore if it doesn't work out .

I'd just ask that the choice not require high humidity -

Normally I would be a sucker for a thread like this, but I'm afraid the timing is too bad for me

Default Project 3 - Plant List & Discussion

Hope you've all been keeping track of 'chids you'd like to see in the OrchidBoard Project...

we'll start our discussions this coming Sunday night at 8:00pm est...

the first order of business is choose which vendor here in the States that we'll be using...

then it's on to the plants!

It's gonna be great!!!
So far, we have 25 members in 5 countries on our tentative list

By the time we order, some of those people will have bowed out...but I'm hoping for a good turnout. We had a great time on our first two projects

Wow, one to remember I bet!!

We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?"
