This event is just around the corner. I've made my reservation to attend. I hope to see more of my Phalaenopsis friends there too.

For more information on speakers, hosting hotel, please see this link

Scott Ware told me that Phalaenopsis house will be opened on Sunday morning. So this will be a great event for us having access to the best of both genus.

I wouldn't be surprised if I come home with a few slipper orchids. I will be looking for a good Paph charlesworthii

Peter, Frank Smith's Phalaenopsis collection will be open on Sunday morning? Well worth the trip.

Peter, I've gone every year for the last 6 or 8 years, but had decided not to go this year as I was trying to get more into phals. Usually, I share a room with Hadley but we won't be doing so this year. It is my understanding that Hadley will pass this year as well. After all we only have so much spendable income, and mine is now going into phals.

Wow, this is great! We seem to have a few closeted paph lovers in the crowd. Just working on the registrations for the Slipper Symposium in Orlando and it's beginning to look like "IPA-lite". Of course it doesn't hurt that Mr. Chen will be there with both paphs AND phals. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Yes, one must register in order to get into the event. The vendors are around the sides of the room where the talks will be held.

When you register, not only will you get to visit the sales room, we'll fill your head with several hours of top-notch speaker presentations, provide a hot buffet lunch, BBQ dinner and a seat at one of the best orchid auctions of the year!

I came home with some paphs, since I have extra space in my two suitcases. Most what I bought are phalaenopsis, obviously.
But my interest in paphs are multi flora type. I don't expect to buy a large flowering paph roth or its hybrid, I too had to start with smaller size.
I'm proud of myself for already repotted these paphs couple days ago. These were shipped wrapped in moss. Root system appears to be good. These are Paph Prince Edward of York, and Lady Roth. These are left over from MainShow, so I got a good deal.

A few brachy type pictured on the right below. Ones on the left are plants I already have. They don't look as good as I would have liked.

On Sunday we went to Frank's open house. I got couple paph including this sib cross of paph roth 'Atticus' x 'Frank Smith'.

I hope to flower these in couple years, maybe more given my past record.

Symposium was fun. Food is great and good fellowship with orchid friends.

I will post pictures to Frank's greenhouse in a different thread.
