Once again, thanks for posting. I too enjoyed the show.
Makes me think I need to improve the light for some of my meager collection.

I would love to be at the show. Guess I will add it to my "bucket list" for "one day".

Neo. carolinae variegata x Hannibal Lecter x Norman Bates - a "killer" cross

(BTW that's apparently what Neo. Hannibal Lector's maker, Chester Skotak thought of the original cross and he was right)

I hope you are all getting ready for the World Bromeliad Conference coming up in Orlando September 24 October 1. http://www.bsi.org/events/2012/Orlando2012.html
I'll be there.
