OK, first off look up Hoosier Orchids on The Orchid Mall
http://www.orchidmall.com They are in your neck of the woods (moreso than
someone from Hawaii, california, or Florida is. Also look up Oakview. There
will also be a large sale sometime in teh late spring early summer that
Oakview and many other midwest staetes put together. It will be one one of
their webpages. Klhem...sheesh who else usually goes to that sale..??

Anyway, welcome to the hobby and check out those vendors near to you for
advice.

I should have mentioned that if you can't wait (orchidaholics can't)
Hausermann's has a sale and instructional workshops the weekend of the 20-23
of Feb.

They should be on the Orchid Mall also.

Its very simple.
Find the cultural requirements of what you have, and do what you have to
make it feel right at home.

lists all the local shows they will be at as a vendor.

Orchid Events in the Chicagoland Area and Nationwide!

http://www.orchidsbyhausermann.com/
YOU'RE INVITED! Hausermann's Annual Open House
A tradition for the Orchid Enthusiast in Mid-America for OVER 30
YEARS.
February 20th through 23rd, 2003 ó 8:00 A.M - 5:30 P.M.
Tour our Orchid Range with over 160,000 square feet of growing
area.
Thousands of Phalaenopsis in FULL COLOR!
Beautiful Cattleyas blooming in a myriad of full colors!
Cymbidiums in their peak blooming form!
Plus a WIDE SELECTION of many other varieties!
Visit our Gift Shop with a terrific selection of decorative pots
and related orchid accessories!

This is a mob scene - Not that that has ever stopped an orchid
buyer.

These are the two big Midwest sales I know of. Some of the shows
may be more available for you and there are other gh in the area.
Windsong and Klehm up near Hampshire, just west of Oak Hill.
EFG around the block from Orchids by Hausermanns.
Natts down in Batavia if you want Ascdas or Vandas.
There are a few growers in Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.
Visit your local society or a show and find out who is around. OR
just run a google search.
Have fun. Looking for interesting blooming plants is 1/2 the fun
of getting started. Grow not just what will grow with your
conditions, but what you like the looks of when it is blooming.

Just so you know, Natts isn't just Ascos and Vandas anymore. They have
increased the number of different orchids that they sell. They have Paphs,
Phrags, Equitants, Masd., etc. They were at the Grand Rapids show a week
and a half ago and I saw their selection. I bought some. (Surprise,
surprise.)

John also informed me it is Naperville not Batavia.
http://www.orchidfestival.com/
This is the Festival Website - Don't miss it if you can help it.
IT is not until Sept. 12-14, 2003 so you have time to plan.
