Default Tamiami International Orchid Show Jan31-Feb 1

Is anyone going to the Tamiami Show this weekend? It is a great show, not too big, indoors, and free parking! Come on OB members! Don't you want some new orchids?

Looks like it's going to be you and me only eh? I plan to go on Saturday, right when they open in the morning. I have never been to this particular show before, coming down from Coral Springs.

Cheers!

I going to try to make it on Sunday! I went last year and picked up a couple of 2 year old new crosses that haven't been seen yet!
Blc. Fringe Benefits x B. cuculiata
Den. Violet Yamaii x Den. spectabile
Both doing good.

Awesome! I am not sure yet when I will go. Saturday will have the freshest plants but Sunday will have the best prices (hence more orchids for my bucks).

Check out the schedule of speakers:

just a general question:

Yes, the vendors start reducing the prices at about 2pm on Sunday. This is especially true for anyone that has to travel far or go back through customs. So I got some great prices last year from the Hawaiian vendors. Local vendors don't have the same motivation.
