I saw it, but while a list is good, it tells you nothing about the quality. It wouldn't be very nice for everyone to end up with a poor quality plant... That's why I was asking for known, good growers.

Two vendors in the US:
Dendrobium peguanum x sib: Orchids By Hausermann
Andy's Orchids - Orchid Species - Dendrobium - peguanum

One in the EU:
Dendrobium peguanum - Orchideen der Schwerter Orchideenzucht

I will keep looking!
I know a few of the people doing the project already have this plant. I know I do.

Regarding some Canadian vendors:
Clouds is awesome but many are seedlings, not bloom size.
Paramount has a huge selection but a lot of the bloom size plants fall into the $35.00 range.
C.R. Orchids has some good plants but his website is horribly out of date. I am supposedly getting a price list in the near future of what he has.
Orchids in Our Tropics has good quality but again, website hopelessly out of date and I e-mailed them a month ago and never heard back.
Crystal Star is good.
Those are the ones I have dealt with. Not too many places for an entire country for choices

In the very early projects people would only suggest plants that no one already had. But back then projects had 10 participants, and now it's frequently over 40. It becomes impossible to avoid selecting plants that some people may have.
Unfortunately for the people that already own the future project plant, you can either sit out of the project, or buy a second plant. I know a few people who have gone for that second option (and that's how I ended up with 2 Haraella odorata!)

Thanks for that info! I'll add the last one to the list, and include notes about the others. Projects involving canada are always such a hassle, there is so little available up there that it makes finding candidate plants a huge headache....

ERIA bractescens

Oak Hill Gardens $15

Only two hits from the OB on this one. Looks interesting but not sure of the full size of it. Cant find an EU vendor though as google isnt working and giving me an error for some reason.

Dimerandra stenopetala

IOSPE PHOTOS

http://www.kopf-orchideen.de/ Not sure of this one as I cant read German on the plant list and the excel isnt translating it right.

J&L Orchids ~ All Other Genera 2 $20 Scroll down to find it. Not sure why J&L is set up that way.

Camille, I got you on that. The vote will determine the plant choice so Im all good.

WOW, take me with you Camille!!! LOL...

Such a lot of great suggestions already. I'm going to have to start digging around and add to the list myself.

On a side note, I also know of people who had the project plant but would still chime in about how they grow the plant(s), show us activity and blooming as it occured, etc... That way, we could all learn from their experiences as well. I'd hate for someone to feel like they can't participate in the discussion at least.

Ok, well just to add a few more to the list, while I'm procrastinating on doing real work.
