    Where was that show at? I am headed to the show at Longwood Gardens on Friday March 23rd. The 23-25 is when all of the vendors set up. Not that I have any room for more orchids.

    When I first saw that, I thought it was Grammatophyllum speciosum!
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This particular scriptum does look very much like speciosum

    One could easily spend well over $200 on a single tiny orchid.

    That's way off, I got my blooming size rothschildianum for $150. I'd say the most expensive orchids are some of the awarded cattleyas and phrags/paphs. I saw a cattleya mossiae with some award sell for $300 today. There were a few paphs (sanderanium) with horrendously high prices too.
