That looks like it was a fun trip. What'd you pick up? Did you get to see any of the Mexipediums? I know they're not blooming now, but I assume they've got at least some of the famous Windy Hill clones there, right?

I didn't pick up much. It was a division swap trip :p I make up excuses to go there. Back when I was getting rid of plants Marilyn held a few for me. Now I'm kind of gearing back up, slowly.

And yes. Mexipediums are plentiful there!

You all need to go visit! Marilyn is the best. She's a wealth of information (used to be the curator of the orchid greenhouse at MoBot) and still does business the old school way. You can tell she's in it for the love of the hobby.

I had to come back and look again. That Ice Princess is fantastic. I
have one from her, but it's a youngun' and hasn't bloomed yet. Did
she have more than one blooming size???
