I will be flying out for the show and to visit Andy's. Any of you orchid nuts going to be there?
Not me, but have fun. The show and the Andy's visit should be great.
Enjoy! I do feel sorry for your wallet though!

Be careful going to Andys or you might find yourself in a lot of trouble like I did haha.
Wow! Rollin, you did some damage! I had to use my self control and left with 5 plants...there is a lot of temptations this is true. Since I am less experienced than many I ask for help selecting things for the beginner that would grow in my environment. The things I was drawn to were of course the things that required conditions I'm not set up for...but I'll be working on those conditions. I plan to visit again in June. Andy and the staff there are great! ( I also had already gotten 7 plants at the orchid show prior to my stop there)
Thank god for tax returns!
Well,Rolling...I didn't do as much damage...but then I'm a beginner and don't want to kill a bunch of plants. I also had to pack them in my suit case, so I got 4The ones I was drawn to were the ones I didn't have the right conditions for, right now! But I plan on going back to visit in June and then in the Fall. my son lives a little over an hour for there so it will be fun to see what's blooming each time. I only got 5 orchids and a hand full of Spanish moss for a friend. I got 6 plants at the show in Westminister. So far everyone is doing well.
So my trip was a success and I bought all I could. Here is the official damage:

Nice haul, Chad. I'll take #10, #11 and #33.
Now that's my idea of shopping!!!
Thanks Tom and Marni. Coming from you're collections I feel a bit validated with the financial setback. There were MANY things that I could not pry from Andy that I tried in good faith. The rest of the stuff I wanted you (Marni) had already picked up in SF, which is just how it goes sometimes. Plus another guy from CA bought every single Paph species from Manote, which was good fom him and crap for me. Hopefully I can get a preorder into him and Katai for Redlands. The have some very rare stuff. Also if anyone (Tom perhaps) may want anything from Andy/Phuphaman Orchids in Thailand, they can also get the plants to Katai if you give them proper notice. Katai said they are good friends and about an hour away from each other. Tom- I am still working on the Bulb. repens. I am hoping they can come in for the Redlands. I will take the risk and purchase a few if you are still on the hunt.
And by the way, those who may not know or have dealt with Katai Phrao before (Chiang Mai, Thailand) she is excellent to deal with and always a pleasure to speak with. By far she is one of the most consistently happy people I have ever talked to.

I wouldn't have expected any less! I guess the vex. was the first piece Andy said that he has ever sold, which originated from Ron Parson's a while back, so I guess we win a few here and there.
Who did you get that coccinea aurea from?
Andy. Seedling size for far cheaper than the $200 price tag on some.
Sweet haul Chad! Where did #33 come from?
Nice to see your list and display .. I was there as well and did my part in bring home more than expected.. And loved what Andy had as well
Zach- I got it from Tropical Exotique. It wasn't until after I ID'd a number of his pics and chatted with him for a bit that he pulled it out of a box under the table. It is not in the best condition but it looks like its perking up. He actually gave me this and a few others for about $5 each. I certainly can't complain.
Wow! Lucky you! That one actually does better than I expected in slightly warmer conditions
I'm growing mine cool, how warm do you have it?
In the summer months it gets into the 90's during the day occasionally. On average for the majority of the year mid 80's during the day low 60's at night. As long as it's moist it does well. I can't notice a difference in growth rate when its cooler.
