SBOE $7.50 table rocks.

Was in Santa Barbara today specifically to visit Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology to pick up a Calanthe argenteostriata they were holding for me and to talk to them about the plants I want from them next year. Had to stop at SBOE to check out the $7.50 table, no trip to SB is complete without that. Found 10 species I bought plus one that blew me away.

Here amongst the crowd was Zootrophion vulturipes, a plant I have been looking for. It is a hard to find pure white Zootrophion http://www.orchidspecies.com/zoovultuiceps.htm which I bid on eBay but was knocked out as it sold for $69. Andy has it for about $60 as does J & L for a similar price. At $7.50, I bought 3 of them and was kicking my heels. Love that table, actually about 15 tables.

What a delight. Did your heart speed up a little when you realized what you'd found?

Yes it did. I bought 5 of them. The intent is not to sell them but to make 'MEANINGFUL' trades with them.

Actually only have 3 but a friend is picking up a few more for me if they still have them. I'm going to grow one cold and one intermediate plus one mounted. See what they like best. Hopefully my friend will bring me a few more.
