As long as one of each variety is labelled, it wouldn't be too hard to label them as we are dividing them into groups.

Anybody who does want the 'greenhouse experience', just PM me and we can work something out. I'd love to be in a situation where everything was done and I had to turn away offers of help, but I can't really see that happening. Always something to do!!

Thanks

Rob

I could use some more broms. I would like some where between 10 to 20 of them depending on size. The green house thing sounds cool too. So count me in for that to. I just need to say that i wouldn't be able to do anything on a Saturday because, I will be in my botany class at OU. So please make it a Sunday if you can. If it can't be avoided I'm still in. I just have to pick them up another day or something.

Rob, I'm in to help out at your greenhouse. I could use some lessons on potting Orchids anyway. I've had some of mine for 10+ years but I don't seem to pot them very well. Book learning isn't the same as hands on!!!

On the brom orders, I'm in for around 15-25 as long as most are smaller AND most are water holding types. I would really like to pick the varieties I get so if whoever is placing the order makes up a simple order compilation sheet it'd be great. I was just going to pick and choose by descriptions online by myself but I'd rather go in with everyone else. No matter what, I'm in! If everyone comes through with what they say, we should have a pretty big order.

Also, what about the possibility of other plants (i.e. Tillandsias maybe?) to possibly drop the prices further still? Or, after deciding which company we go with, we possibly place individual orders under the group umbrella for a percentage/or dollar amount off being negotiated. Michaelsbroms and tropiflora for example, have other plants that I'm interested in also.

I've actually got a whole bunch of tillandsias in the greenhouse right now... They are embarassingly cheap wholesale.

Anyone decide anything about the group buy yet? I've got a list of broms that I'd like to order but I've been waiting to see if we're still on for the big order. Not being pushy but I've got 7 viv's that are done except for plants and I'm dying to get them in service!!!!.

Also, Rob, when are you available? I'm on temperary layoff due to the strike at American Axle so coming up I'd like to come out to get some things. How much do tillandsias generally run? Also, do you carry any Carnivorous plants?

Heh... I'm on a more permanent layoff due to the sucky michigan economy in general...

So, I'm around whenever. Weekdays for sure, any time between 10 and 4 is good. Tillandsias i usually sell for anywhere between 3 and 10 dollars, depending on the type and how much they cost me.
