The link to pre-orders from Paph Paradise does not seem to be available yet. Thanks.
 
Thanks for the registration form. For some reason on my computer all I see is
the general announcement of the event down to the list of speakers but nothing else.
 
Thanks yes, I read that but it seems mismatched like someone tied the wrong email address to the vendor name. It looks wrong because you would expect a Woodstream preorder to go through woodsteeam3@etc and an orchidzone preorder to have name orchidzone in it. So it begs the question if the address is paired to the correct vendor.

I found an email address for orchidzone elsewhere and sent a note there asking about preorders (as well as to this address- and the two addresses are different)

Woodstream is one of the organizers of the paph forum. In fact, 2 of the vendor's plants will be sent ahead of time to Woodstream to assure safe arrival for the paph forum.
