Re: More IAS show (Sept. 18-19, 2010) info ...

Hi Steve and all,

While I have never been able to go to one of these shows as I simply can
not justify the expense to travel to Miami by myself and ditch the family I
always admire the pics of the show after the fact that appear either on the
IAS site or via this forum....maybe some day when the kids are out of
college :o)

I wonder if anyone can tell me whether Dracontium are ever available at the
IAS show?  This is the one genus that inspires me and I have had some
success with them over the past 5 years so am always looking to acquire a
new species.  I should say that most of the specimens I have are of the
no-ID variety though.  I have 3 known species (polyphyllum, prancei and
amazoense) and perhaps as many as 5 unknown sp based on known locale of the
place they came from.....proves nothing I realize, but gives me hope :o)

If anyone can hook me up with a seller at the IAS show that sells
Dracontium for these good prices Steve talks about I'd love to hear from

Thanks so much,

Gibsonia, PA

Aroiders, more info on the IAS show which is in 2 weeks. As usual, see 
http://aroid.org/show/ for more information:

One reason people come to the annual IAS show is that it is a place to 
acquire rare plants at very attractive prices. Every year the array of 
commercial aroid offerings on the show floor is unsurpassed by any other 
venue. And the best thing is that you can speak directly with the vendors, 
availing yourself of their expert opinions, and pick out the specimens you 
like best. What's more, when you buy them, you have them right there in 
your hand. No need to wait and worry about when they might arrive at your 
house and what shipping travails they may have experienced in transit. A 
bird in the hand, as they say.
Then, there's the auction. The auction is the place to find really 
one-of-a-kind plants, and sometimes two-of-a-kind plants. Prices have been 
historically what one might call a "steal", although some of us are 
working hard so that prices in the future will be boosted by attracting 
more bidders. So this year might be your chance to secure astonishingly 
rare plants at very modest prices. Auction details will be available, as 
they become known to us, on the IAS website.
Rare plants. Isn't that the reason you're a member? Get them at the show.
