Wow, that was a great find, and such a beauty! However, if a grower is looking for a PARTICULAR type of orchid, I would not recommend that they look at the bargain table, expecting them to find that particular type, on those tables. For one, many of the plants on the bargain table are not labeled correctly, if at all. Another problem, is that, all orchids do not have the same requirements (watering, fertilizing, light, etc.), in order to grow them well. Most will wind up dying anyway. Also, as discussed in this forum, several years ago, such opportunities do not reliably happen, all over the country, at all such stores: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1095676/
