I purchased a Sedirea japonica ($25.00) in bloom; I choose one that was crawling out of it's pot as I wanted to repot it soon and did not want to have to disturb it's roots that much - there were about 25-30 of them, all Eric Michel's plants and they were all in bloom in & great health.
I also had to purchase one of Hilltop's crosses - a Phalaenopsis (Shelby Katalyn 'Brenda' X Brother Pirate King 'Red') X gigantea 'Hilltop's Giant' CCN / AOS. It was super healthy, in great bloom and was around $35.00. Should be a great parent to work with! Love the mottling on the blooms and it has a clear yellow background that is great! Good sized, flat bloom and a huge plant.
I have only left there once without a purchase - I love to go there, but my checking account suffers. Oh, well, lunch meat for supper again!! But, even lunch meat tastes better with an orchid centerpiece on the table to enhance the flavor, you know!
p.s. I only posted a few of the pics I took - OB just allows so many pics at one time and I thought this would give others a taste of what lies in store there. You can call Rick or go online to his website and email him. He knows the varieties he has like the back of his hand and he has a really good grasp of all the Eric has there, but Eric has sooooo many odd little ones that it would be impossible to know them all! He does mail out orders and will be glad to talk to you about his inventory.
Here are some more pics that I haven't posted yet! If I duplicate one or two, please excuse:
