  IAS Auction
From: plantnut at shadow.net (Dewey Fisk) on 1998.08.29 at 12:02:15(2561)
Greetings all.

At the annual meeting in September the IAS will again have a Plant Auction.
Please go to . There,
Lester Kallus has scanned in some of the pictures of the plants that will
be auctioned.

You are invited to participate.....

Plants shown and listed are for Auction on Sept. 25th at the IAS Annual
Meeting.

The auction will work in the following manner: Send Dewey Fisk
a *private message* listing the highest bids that you
are willing to pay for individual plants. You will then be in competition
with the bidding floor.

Example: You are willing to pay $150. for a plant but the highest bid on
the floor was $95. The bidding has been in $5. increments... Your bid of
$100. will be the sucessful bid. All bids will be confidential and will be
known only to the person on the floor that is bidding for you and, of
course, to Dewey.

You will be notified after the meeting if your bid was successful and its
amount. Shipping charges of between $3. & $5. will be added to your bid.
You will then send a check or Visa/Master Card information to the IAS and
the plant will be mailed to you via USPS Priority Mail.

So, take a look at the photos and listed plants, decide if there is
anything you like. All of the pictured plants were collected and
cultivated in French Guiana by our Speaker, Joep Moonen owner of Emerald
Jungle Village in French Guiana. Pictures were taken in the jungle of
mature plants. Plants offered are divisions that have been growing in a
mist chamber for the last month and are not necessarily mature plants as
pictured. They will, however, be rooted and ready to grow in your
location.

Also available at Auction but not pictured are:

Alocasia zebrina... about 2 ft. tall
Alocasia Hybd. (between A. micholitziana and A. bullatus, about 12 in. tall)
Alocasia sanderiana variegata (about 12 in. tall)
Caladium bicolor var. rubricundum (in 4" pots from tissue culture)
Amorphophallus konjac "Riorden Clone" (6" pots)
Anthurium willifordii (6" pots)
Gonatopus boivinii 'Green Clone' (6" pot)
Anthurium lucidum (mature plant)

Sorry, but, due to Customs restrictions, plants are available only to those
who live in areas not requiring Phytosanitary Certificates.

Greetings all.

This is the second sending of this message. You might want to get in on
the Auction as the bids have been sort of scarce.....

I'd like description and photos of the Alocasias or Colocasias offered at the
auction before bidding. Is that possible?

Hold all bets!!!!

One of our local members has just donated a Philodendron tenue to the
Auction to be held Saturday night, October 31st..... It is a beautiful
plant with foliage that is 7 - 8 inches wide and about 10 " long. The
ribbing is just delightful... Looks almost like an Anth. vietchii.

This plant is a real jewel... I will be bidding on it myself...

Hello everyone,
There is now a page for the IAS auction, including pictures that are
clickable for a larger image on the IAS website. It is accessible from the
home page or from the show information page. The page is not completed as
of yet because all of the photos are not yet available to me, but it is as
complete as it can be at this time, and it will be updated regularly. A
direct link to the page is:
If anyone has any suggestions or sees any mistakes please let me know.
Best Regards,

Great job on the IAS auction WWW page:
The pix are great...nice to see so many interesting plants in one place.
The Philodendron espiritu sancti is wow! And what an interesting collection
of Alocasia. Alas, I'm thru Miami a week too early...probably couldn't
keep them alive anyway...I seem to have failed miserably with a Spathiphyllum
from Lowe's (needs more water than I can supply).

Clear skies,
Al

Dear Al,
Thanks for the kind words. Personally I think we should all get together to
buy the espiritu sancti and tissue culture it. It is truly gorgeous.
Forgive me for asking, but if you kill plants, what made you join IAS??
If you really love them, you could always hire someone to care for them.
(just kidding, half the fun is the challenge.)
Have a good evening!
Best Regards,
-- Jill Bell
