It started today, but I intend to go tomorrow.  Andy Phillips will be there.  He’s one of my favorite orchid vendors.  His prices don’t decrease when I visit his booth at a show, but I don’t have to pay shipping.  Never once have I gotten a bum plant from him.  He sells species, which is what I prefer.  I have a handful of hybrids, but the species are more interesting.  I’ve kept some of his plants chugging along for two decades, divided them, and traded some of the divisions with other orchid growers.  Orchids are pretty tough customers.  I’m much better at growing them than ordinary houseplants.
