Default Spring 2010 project sign up!

OK here's the deal. If enough people sign up I will be willing to run the project (at least 10) also providing that EVERYONE who signs up MUST provide at least 1 plant suggestion that fit the critiria from the group (warm, interm. cool) that they are participating in.They need to be available to everyone, and was not used in a previous project. By doing this, it will help educate you as well as helping me!

Plants used in previous

Project 1 - Phal. lobbii
Project 2 - Angraecum scottianum
Project 3 - Paph. venustum
Project 4 - Aerangis luteoalba var rhodostica
Project 5 - Laelia reginae
Project 6a - Sediera japonica
Project 6b - Neo. falcata
Project 7 - Mystery Cirr. tingabarium, Asc. pumilum, Res. dodsonii
Project 8 - Haraella retrocalla
Project 9 - Miltonia spectabilis, Coelogyne cristata, Leptotes unicolor

Here's a list of well known and respected vendors
Andy's Orchids - Orchid Species - Orchids - Species Specialist - Orchids on a stick
Oak Hill Gardens
Orchids By Hausermann
Mountain Orchids, Orchids & Plants for discriminating tastes
J&L Orchids ~ Home Page

Orchid Vendors in the European Union
Azienda Agricola Nardotto e Capello
Paramount Orchids
Cloud's Orchids
Home - Orchids In Our Tropics

I'm sure there are many other vendors and it's OK to use them, Just be sure they sell quality plants. AND let me know and I'll add them to the list.

We will be choosing Species plants that are compact in size with a max of 18 inch with spike. Blooming size, flowering time can vary. There will be a $25.00 cap on the price, have no idea what that converts to in Canada and Europe.

Please let me know if this works for you by signing up in this thread. Hope we can get a lot of people to participate it will make it much more fun.
I know, I know, I said I wasn't going to run the project but I feel the need to get a new plant to keep from getting the DT's, so it might as well be a project plant.

In simple English you have to do a little work to participate. For instance. If you want to get the warm project plant you must find a warm growing plant to suggest, that fits all the criteria for the group or groups you want to participate in. 1 group 1 plant suggestion, 2 plant 2 plant suggestions ect... That means Availability to all, size, price, and it being a species. once all suggestons are made I will put up a poll and only the participates will vote for the final choices.
