That's too bad. I like species, too. Do they have a website? Found Tropical Exotica - We specialized in cloning of exotic and rare orchid plants ! but not Tropical Exotique. Did find their facebook page, though, but no website listed.

Not the same... country code of Tropical Exotica that you mentined, is in Singapore. TropicalExotique is a Thai outfit. Manote Quah is the owner. Doesn't seem to have a website, here's Facebook page TropicalExotique
All sorts of unusual things, pretty much bare-root. I have had a decent success rate with his plants. If you bookmark IOSPE on your phone, a good reference to figure out growing conditions on the fly.

That's a great idea regarding using ISOPE. I use that all the time when I'm home and considering ordering online.
They are also going to be at the Huntington show and sale.

There will be signs. East of the main gate. I'm sure you will see the line if you get there right at opening. Later i the day we'll probably move it to the Members Gate next to the main gate if it really slows down. So just follow the signs.

Where is the entrance to the overflow parking lot? Do we access it via Chestnut (through the main parking lot)? I'll be looking for the signage.

Depending on the direction you're coming from... The overflow lot is as the east end of the parking lot - there's a church at the corner of the Zoo parking lot and the entrance to the Zoo parking nearest the overflow lot is right next to it. (Actually, we'll also be able to use the church lot for the overflow lot to overflow onto if needed) Take a look at the satellite view of Google Maps to get oriented. If you are coming from the north (off the 5 freeway) you approach the zoo from the west side (Chestnut runs into Main), so just go the length of the parking lot toward the east and park wherever you find a spot.
