Hi Aaron...no laughing here...we all have to start somewhere
Sorry you went through the trouble of lissting all your 'chids, but that idea won't work.
I've separated the list into 2 sections...towards the bottom, you'll see another line of ************* and everything listed after that line has a red notation giving the reason it is not one that we can choose from. I'm keeping that list, so we don't have repeats.
If all of us look at the full list, both sections, we will be able to see what we should or shouldn't suggest.
I have also made notations on a few in the upper section, showing which plants I've been able to find at Canadian vendors' sites.
As this is an INTERNATIONAL 'CHID PROJECT, I really think we should try to choose one that our Canadian members have access to. If there's a plant listed that you just MUST have, you can always add it to your order.
So far, I know I will be choosing the Cischweinfia dasyandra as my first choice, it's a beautiful plant, it's fragrant, it's a species, not too large, and inexpensive...which allows us to buy an extra plant
This last link is to Paramount Orchids for our Canadian members. It's more expensive than at Oak Hill, but at least there will not be any import/export fees.
I would also suggest to our Canadian members that they find a plant they like at Oak Hill, then find it in Canada, as they probably have more knowledge of their own vendors than I do. Those plants should be posted here with a link for all of us to see...thanks
We have ONE WEEK left to pull our thoughts together...
