    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.

    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

    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?
