Just wondering if anyone will be going? My friends and I went for the first time last year and had a great time. We will be going again this year. I vaguely remember a vendor on the upper level selling Pinguicula, but didn't check them out because I was too focused on picking up some orchids.
I will be going after lunch Saturday. Has anyone gone on Sunday before? Are the crowds as big as Saturday? We were thinking of going Sunday but my friends were worried about not being able to pick up the plants that wanted.
Yeah....I agree...I am also going to go earlier rather than later just in case the plants are gone. I have read some stories of mistakes and some plants in orders being sold away by mistake. I finally found a lepanthes nycteris and I don't want to miss it. lol
I bought too many orchids. Just too many. lol! Mostly lepanthes, one masdevallia and a poroglossum
I managed to stay in budget! Brassavola nodosa, Maxillaria tenuifolia and Neofinetia falcata seedling. I was so tempted by the flasks but I have enough projects on the go... Bought a Dendrobium kingianum by accident. I was looking to select an R. gigantea but I got crossed up - rookie mistake (I could have put that $25 and bought a Susan Fuchs instead).
The bloke with the D.adelae and D. capensis seemed to have a genuine interest in CPs. While I was chatting with him, a woman came by who'd seen a field of seedlings in Queensland! His plants looked high quality but a bit pricey for a beginner.
The crowds were awful but they seemed to move in waves. The RBG show will probably be bigger?
