    Pretty huge - there's a sort of highland area that has intermediate/highland nepenthes and those helis, there's the room that has all the sarrs/vft's some dews and those two ceph pots. There's also the orchid house that has all those massive amounts of catts and phals and paphs and stuff, and those nep ampullarias and truncatas and stuff, and there's also other tropical rooms and desert areas and stuff.

    It looks so nice and wild
    I wish we had something like that near here :O
    (icps place doesnt count, thats a 2hr drive and i dont even have a car )
    Thanks I took pics of staghorn ferns for you too
    It's actually halfway cross country for me no matter where I am, but you know if I'm already on vacation I might as well spend a day to fly down and go see it. I'm glad I went for sure.

    I do too. I'm going to string up a hammock from the gazebos in the orchid house

    Zu, I am VERY jealous!!!!
    Next time I'm in Charlotte, I guess I should go there, 4 hour drive.
    Where are you vacationing anyways, Zu?

    Also, did they have a gift shop with Neps, Sarrs, Cephs, Etc.?
