It is amazing that Frank Smith's exhibit was not voted the best at the World Orchid Conference. As far as diversity and plant quality, it is a travesty that it did not get Grand Champion.
Ohhhhh, OK, well I wish I had known. Did you get any nice paphs?NYEric......I didn't realize it was you when I was giving you a hard time about the number of plants you were buying. I was the blond guy with real short hair sitting at a table with my laptop. You told me one was a present and I said 'what a nice present.' Too bad I didn't realize until later when Ramon told me it was you or I would have said hey!
I have also heard rumors a few rumors but I will not relay them.
