I am just so glad we were able to find enough plants to have a decent list of choices. Cost and availability can always be a challenge when you are doing a worldwide project.

Hi Jack,

Unfortunately the Grammatophyllum martae grows extremely large so it fell outside the size parameters of the project.

The Dendrobium amethystoglossum we were not able to find enough vendors in the USA who carried it in blooming size within the price parameters for the project. Sorry

The grammatophyllum was ruled out due to the size of the plant. The rules for suggesting plants were limited to miniature/compact sized plants. The dendrobium amethystoglossum is just not possible to find for sale in the US, at least, not that I can tell. I looked myself because I figured I would order one and no one seems to have them.

When I was choosing what to vote for, I took into account what kinds of prices I could find for them. Google gave me no affordable results for Cattleya aclandiae, though, but since it was added on here, I guess some have been found?

No need to research prices, we did all of that, and all the plants can be found for under $25 (usually under $20). Melissa (shadytrake) did the research on this one:

IOSPE PHOTOS

Clown Alley: $20
Gold Country: $15
H&R: $25 (they have two types)
Exotic Orchids of Maui: $8-$35 (they have four types)
Orchids Limited: $50-$200 (they have some select types)
Orchid Shope: EUR27
Ecuagenera: $20 (they come to Redlands so you can preorder and pickup)
Orchid Species: GBP20
Marlow's: $39
Tropical Orchid Farm: $8
Olympic: $7
Seagrove: $20
Wilhelm Hennis: EUR12.50
Andy's: $25
Wichmann: EUR20
Tropic: EUR30
Woodland: $25
Claessen: EUR6.50 (seedling)
So indeed it can be found within the price limits in the US (there are EU growers mixed in there, but sadly for me most have seedling plants.... )

Oh, awesome! Seems I had missed that post.

Google kept giving me results for some rare $50 cultivar. I was like "Nnnnnope!"

I didn't have the energy to update the first post of that thread with all the new information Melissa posted...
