    Talking with some friends about it there was a lot of interest in doing an orchid event, however, there's not many orchid fans in the city, so I was wondering how likely is to invite some of you guys? lol
    Would you travel to an orchid event with very rare and beautiful orchids awaiting you? O:

    Not a pleasant experience getting plants from Au to USA.

    Probably the North of Mexico, by this summer, that would be cool.

    Mexico, but I travel a bit within the range of course... I would love to travel far, but really can't afford it.

    Where or what is Au? Never heard of any place as Au, that sounds like an element from the science table lol

    I would like to add some extra details, it is still just a plan, so I'm not sure the exact day. But most likely in the mid days of July. All the plants in show will have the proper documentation, we are only inviting the most exclusive and reputable orchid growers, so all plants would be flask or species with full documentation. I hear according to APHIS that you can bring up to 13 plants with you lol Thought not sure if it is only when moving or anyone can do that. I'll research.

    For any odd reason, I thought I read you were from Australia.

    I'd love to... But no, I'm in a much drier place... No mango smoothies or easy access to anime...

    Will keep the group posted! Being able to trade plants or not, I hope it would be quite a show and maybe flasked species are a possibility.
