Here a few photos of some plants, which will be available in the auction:

Cymbidium Spark Sprite 'Sparky'

Guarianthe aurantiaca ('Orange Spots' x self)

Brassavola nodosa (night fragrant species)

And, if you have never been to the Dearborn Market, they have excellent meats and produce, and a deli department with spectacular sandwiches.

Love the Brassavola. I was having a bit of luck with orchids several years ago. I think you have reignited the passion.

@bigben_again , road trip?

As a plant (and cat) person, you shall be more than welcome.

I hope to get a complete list of plants in the auction about 4-6 days before the auction.  If so, I will make it available to anyone asking in a PM.  It should also be posted on the society web site:

Update:  There will be 350+ plants in this auction.  If you would like to see what plants, the auction listing can be found here:
