He has made a pre-order list available with some incredibly cool offerings of Cattleya and Laelia species, which are not commonly available. For example, he has some very interesting Purpuratas for sale, and some fascinating compact Cattleya species (such as Schilleriana and Alaorii) which are not only beautiful, but compact in size as well.  If you are interested, get those orders in, and we hope to see you at the October meeting!
