Crushed and need some TLC for next couple years lol.
sweet ! very very dark indeed , potential future awards and breeding material for sure
Saw Rick (aka SlipperKing) today at last day of show. Took a quick pic after a good chat on his net-in-pot method. Really educational! Hope you do write that article in Orchids magazine as recommended by Jay the AOS President.

Yes, a good time was had by all!
It was great to finally cross paths with DrLeslieEe, talk shop and avoid Bob's alligator at the same time! LOL.

I did end up with one of Mr. Chen's roths but not the 800! I saw all the leftover ones at Frank Smith's on Monday so Mr. Chen didn't miss out on any sales.
I too was in West Palm Beach working the week before... my problem is I had to be in another state, during Redlands... sigh.... one year i will make it....
I understand there are some really good nurseries selling there, in some cases, plants we don't get to see all the time.
I did however pre-order a plant from a vendor, that they drop shipped to me (USPS UGH) once they got to Florida...
so did manage a otherwise next to impossible plant because of that
So many people so close in time and space!

Here I urge fellow ST’s to move Heaven and earth to descend upon Redland Festival for one day to meet and exchange ideas and connect for the good of mankind lol.
