I never thought of that! And since I am not going for anything in specific, that could be a great money- saver!!

Thanks for the tip!!

Hi everyone. I went to the show and here's what I bought:

Laelia liliputana
Neostylis 'Lou Sneary' Bluebird
Sediera japonica
Cadetia Taylori
Laelia purpurata var. carnea
A big floofy white orchid for a gift (the tag is stuck in the medium so I don't know the name)

I wish I could have bought more, but I promised myself to behave (at least somewhat)

I go every year since it's like 10 minutes from my house.

It's probably a very good thing that I don't live that close!

Susanne,

I live in the danger zone: close to most of the orchid growers in South Florida, close to OFE international, close to the orchid shows... The most I have to drive is 30 minutes east or south to get to these places. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....it's like putting a kid in a candy store and telling it "NO."

And my friends actually wonder why I have managed to accumulate "so many" orchids in the 2 years that I've been involved in the hobby. I tell them that I'm actually a good girl.

Post of your plants if you can! I love seeing what people buy. I can't wait for my local orchid show at the end of March!

LOL...anytime my husband brings up the subject of us ever moving (we were in each of our 2 first houses for about 5 yrs each, and we're here for 4 so far so )...I give him the criteria list and one of them is where ever we decide to go, it has to be SOUTH!!!
