  IAS Show Vendors
From: "Christopher Rogers" <crogers at ecoanalysts.com> on 2008.08.26 at 14:36:01(18424)

Is there a list of vendors for the show? I am curious as towho might be there and what they might bring. This is my first IAS show, and Iam very much looking forward to it. Someone also asked me if IAS members getdiscounts. Is this true?

Happy days,

There is a list of Vendors for the Show but I don't have it. Off the top of my head I can tell you that the ones I recollect are Steve Nock from ree gardens, Palm Hammock Orchid Estate, Home Chayonovich from Thailand (he brings aroid corms and rhizomes), and Ron Kaufmann from Ecuagenera. Plus, a lot of smaller vendors who sell through the member's table: Silver Krome Gardens, Natural Selections Exotics, Ron Weeks Nursery and Don Bittel.

There is no discount for IAS members but you will find some odd and unusual aroids at this show at some reasonable prices, as well as some for some unreasonable prices. If you are really into aroids you will have a good time talking to the other Aroidophiles who are there...

If you tell Tricia Frank that you are coming to help out at the show you will be able to get in earlier than the locals on Friday PM and be able to peruse the tables before the show opens. Plus the Banquet is a real hoot particularly the Auction of the plants.

I hope this helps to whet your apetite and answer some of your questions.

I will add that as part of my Cryptocoryneworkshop I'll be bringing some "show and tell" plants, whichI will then donate to the evening auction. So, if you don't have a fullboat of Crypt plants you can pick up a few.
