    See if they have bulbophyllum rhodoleucum. If so, please buy me as many as you can. Thanks.

    Unless they've changed their importers a lot they don't have many Old World orchids. But.... I'll give you all of my points, Tom, if you ignore Jon and get me the rhodoleucums. And.....I'll trade you 15:1.

    I envy your proximity to Parkside. I attended the Fest one summer and absolutely loved the place. The NICEST people I've ever met and cool dogs, too.

    I was able to get one bulbophyllum rhodoleucum....NOT

    I spent an hour or two walking around checking everything out. I had a very limited budget so only 2 plants followed me home:

    Masdevallia lilacina
    Pleurothallis alata

    Both are in bloom and I will try to get pictures tomorrow

    Another thumbs up to Parkside.....I decided I needed a break so the entire family went for a drive today and we went to Parkside :)

    Only 3 plants followed me home though:

    Cirrhopetalum dentiferum
    Masdevallia amaluzae
    Masdevallia tovarensis

    Go around the holidays when they do their "mystery discount" thing with the color-coded gumballs. (Assuming they'll do it again this year.) Last Christmas I scored 30% off my entire haul. Definitely more than worth three hours in the car to get there. And yes, super nice folks with scary orchid knowledge.

    Last time I was there for their mystery discount sale (I'm only 10 miles away), I was the first one to check out, and hit the max 40% right off the top!

    Just learning to navigate the site. Used to live within a few miles of Ottsville. How I envy all of you who can just pop in.

    That's why I could not find their web site. It's a shame, hate to see good business bit the dust.
