Great photos Rick, you really covered the plant displays and venue well. Yes the new venue is fantastic + loads of parking. Just being able to walk 360o around the displays and being able to walk 3 abreast around the sales tables allows one to carry more and continue shopping.

I managed to convince myself to buy several new plants - just alittle something to feed the addiction.

It was said that numbers maybe alittle down compared to previous shows however when I left today, one couldn't walk around the sales tables without shuffling past people.


What did you buy Matt?Huh?  Pics pretty please.

I never made it up which is probably good, because I cant afford any at the moment. 

Its good that its a bigger venue, its so hard when you cant walk around with a brom in your arms, makes it very hard.

Hi everyone,

What a great coverage of a great show in a great venue. I still don't know how I haven't seen this thread until today. Huh  Huh  Huh

It makes a change to see a show where there is a bit of room to move around, especially around the plant sales area, what a wonderful venue for a show and even some seats for the oldies to sit down and just look at the overall picture.

Well done Bromeliad Society of Queensland, give yourself a big pat on the back for a well presented show.

Rick, you're not forgotten either for taking on the task of show photographer, and you deserve a well earned pat on the back also. Because you did such a magnificent job I'll nominate you for the job again next year; anyone second that motion?

All the best, nev.

I'm with Nev...I'll second his motion...and I missed this thread as well  Tongue

Looks like a great venue, with heaps of room, what a luxury, and what fantastic plants!

Graeme & I must have very similar taste in plants as my fav's are the Guz. lindenii's and the Neo. HL x Tiger variegates  Wink

Well done Rick, great photos.

Thanks, Andrew.

Phil,

I've deleted my high res pictures which may have helped me read its name. Do any tillandsia experts know the name of the plant for Phil?

It looked like it picked up 3rd place in the flowering tillandsias - if I see the results in Bromeliaceae I'll let you know.

Hi guys, multispike plant is T complanata. Many forms in nature but the ones with the amazing spotted and blotched foliage are *^$#@ hard to grow (and get hold of). Maybe Bruce can post a few Ecuador pics?? Pedro

Hi Folks,

The BSQ says that sales were good and they will be giving the new place another go.

Cheers,

Ahaaaa!  I know this is more-than-a-bit-late, but I reckon Bruce's "altitude" thing is definitely worth a thought. 

Something that intrigued me enormously when I got into scuba diving was nitrogen narcosis - like you get seriously high on the nitrogen in the air (nitrogen's about 70% of it), becoming pretty much totally whacko by the time you get to around 30 metres = 3 atmospheres pressure under the water.  I was once on a dive when we had to rescue a guy who was trying to give his regulator (ie air supply) to a friendly, local grouper fish that was hanging around ..... under a 100 feet of water ... laughing his head off ....

The interesting problem with this is that at 1 atmosphere pressure, ie sea level, you're still 30% totally whacko.  Hence the historical preferences for poets, mystical sages, etc, to head into the high hills where they can think clearly .............  nnnaaaaaahhhh!    Give me sea level any day.

Cheers, Paul

Hello Michelle

Don't forget I have a COUPLE of Darwin stubbies here that need the top knocked off, not my cup of tea though.
