Dan, I hope you will find a way to be with us in the next year or two. Good plantsmen need to be at the show to share information!

Hi Steve and all,

While I have never been able to go to one of these shows as I simply
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
no-ID variety though.  I have 3 known species (polyphyllum, prancei
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

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
venue. And the best thing is that you can speak directly with the
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
your hand. No need to wait and worry about when they might arrive at
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
more bidders. So this year might be your chance to secure
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
