Any of you that have orchid clubs near enough to attend - I would recommend doing so. It is a great place to learn/share info, and many tend to give freebies or almost freebies from time to time. The club I attend meets the first Tuesday each month, and they were giving out near-blooming size Vanda Tokyo Blue 'Sapphire'. I got the first one free, and paid $6 for the second one (I LOVE vandas! ). I looked it up on-line. They look very promising. (providing I don't kill them ) Some of the growers specialize in one or a few types of 'chids, and are the BEST sources of advice & tips; even better if you can visit their greenhouses. Also, many growers keep their best plants in back corners or off-limits areas of the greenhouses, but if you get lucky with the timing of your visit, you may be there when they are selling divisions of overly large plants. Most I've met tend to be quite generous oke:.
