Oh I wish I still live in Torrance! I would have gone! But we are now about 5 hours to the north! So most of the shows I go to are nearer here in the Bay area Big Grin

Carol, thanks for posting! I think you might be the first one ever here on our forums to report from this Show.
Gotta love that gigantic Dendrobium speciosum. They must have used a huge truck to cart that monster inside. Amazing plant!
