Lots of ang leaves, not many angs.
I'm so happy you all enjoyed yourself! It's an understatement to say it was a pleasure to meet Alexis, MJ and Jon. I really enjoyed myself, and it was well worth the Miami traffic chaos I had to deal with Alexis and her hubby were great hosts and the sweetest people. Thank you again!!!
Jon is witty and clever..... and taller than I expected.
MJ, what can I say. You are as awesome as I knew you would be. I wish my wife could've been there and met you all.
Marry me, Dew!!!!
That thing is huge. I have not seen the species anywhere that I remember. Does it always grow this big? I had P gigantea but this is much bigger than the one I had.
Harry, this is the biggest mariae I have. My giganteas are all babies, so I can't compare sizes from personal experience. Bakers' book says mariae has leaves 6-12". The monster in the photo has 16" leaves. My other BS mariae has 10".
Bakers' says gigantea leaves can reach 22-36", so this is clearly a larger plant. The texture of the leaves on the two species is also quite different. Mariae has very thin leaves that are completely pendant; while giganteas have more texture and rigidity.
Here's a link from last year when my other plant bloomed http://www.orchidsinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=4157&highlight=mariae
I love pendent leaves like this so I need to find this one. It's very nice. Thanks for the information Alexis.
Alexis, you sure know how to whip out that C.C. Good for you.
All cash, baby! I save my pennies, and then there's no guilt involved. Makes it impossible to break the budget...
I would say hi to you all but I was afraid you might hug me. Any party plan yet for 2011, Alexis?
I want to know what that tall guy bought besides some Bulbos. Any good Trias sp at the show?
Were you there, Tom?????
Alexis in the cowgirl hat, Jon in the background, in the white blouse, walkin' away..

The show was amazing (granted this is the only orchid show I have been to). It was nice to meet Jon, Mary Jane and Alexis. I didn't get many orchids, but here is my list.
Looking forward to this show again next year.
That's a nice list, Dave. There were some AWESOME aggregatum plants for sale!
