That sure is tempting but it would back it a whole lot easier if you would have your sales in Brisbane  Smiley

Thanks for the invite Andrew. I sure wish I could be there with my Kiwi friends. Looking forward to the annual pics and report as compensation.

John and Agatha - that sales stash of yours should go to many happy homes. Well, they would if on sale at an Aussie brom show. I agree with Andy about those sculptural bromeliifolia - fantastic! And yes, those Neo seedlings look ready for a big cat fight. Great work creating those - congratulations!  ...........b...b..b.but! those Vriesea are the biggest tease for me. Sigh.

Graeme - how about a preview of your sale plants? - unless they're top secret.

BA - If you haven't got your import permit yet, forget about bringing plants back. But seed?....hmmm, ask around.  Wink
Hope you have a great time window-shopping, meeting up with Kiwi brom friends, and seeing part of a very beautiful country. Enjoy!

Good luck to all involved and have fun!
