    "I'm not ready."

    How, exactly, does that happen? You order plants. It takes weeks, months, years, eons for them to arrive. The last thing I ever am, is 'not ready' for them to get here.

    I've been too busy hunting the squirrel to prepare any mounts, soak any coconut fibre, find room to accomodate new plants, replenish my stash of lemur poo, etc. etc. Some of us have *real* jobs and can't pick cranberries all day. :poke:
    :D

    Oh. That's what I wanted to know. Thanks. I won't be picking cranberries 'til October. Tweet that.

    I'm ready emotionally - over-ready. But time to re-check my research on growing a bunch of stuff I can't get here and have never grown before!

    I am curious to know if many of those who participated this year ordered non-angraecoids?

    I am curious how many here ordered. Brenda said there were 30 of us -- and I would guess a good number of those 30 are right here on OI.

    So, yep, I did.

    And Jacob, I ordered all angraecoids, but a good friend of mine ordered as well and he usually gets the other interesting species. (In fact, I think he lurks around here sometimes . . . but doesn't post anything.) Perhaps Mr.B can use his squirrel hunting skills to draw such species nuts into the open.

    Lurkers, come out! You will get much more out of this forum if you interact with us. Plus, it's just good manners.

    Cool! The only non-ang I ordered was a Cynorkis flexuosa, but a friend of mine ordered nearly all the terrestrial species and Eulophiella.

    How bout you bulbo-nuts? Any Madagascan Bulbophyllum?

    *puts on ceremonial squirrel skin robe*

    I hereby summon thee, Anglicans and species nuts alike! Come forth and be counted!

    I know at least one person that ordered but doesn't frequent this forum. There was a little bit of talk about the order on the gardenweb forum so that's probably where some of the 30 came from.

    Yeah, that should bring 'em out of hiding.

    :poke: Just so you know, I wasn't calling you a lurker. :D I was referring to people who read OI but never post anything. You post a lot and I enjoy what you share. Glad to know you ordered some angs too.

    What's an "angraecoid"? Sounds like something you should see a doctor about.

    Based on my "Marni Research" I ordered a bunch of the "Pjais" AKA Gastrorchis this year. I have previously ordered, well, many, of the Cynorkis.
    I do love Cynorkis. I expect to love the Gastrorchis.

    I CAN'T WAIT!
    (Where are these plants going to fit?)
    LOL, that's the fun part!
