Bought a few new av's this weekend, they are so lovely!! I tried to ID them on the optimaras website but it's not so easy. I just love the colors :) I think one of the minis is a hopi!!

RE: My new optimaras!!

Becky. I didn't know Chicago Botanical Garden gift shop sold plants.

Do you know when CBG's AV/Gesneriad Show is?
I plan on going. I also wanted to drive there the wkend of Succulent/Bromiliad show.
Time to visit their site, check show/sale schedules.

Your Optimara's are true beautys. I especially like the white w/pink hue. Beautiful!

Gift shops are always a tad higher in cost.
Becky, if you don't feel like answering, I understand.
What does their gift shop charge, per plant?
Also, do they sell other types of plants? Thanks, Toni

Your white/lavender plant looks like Hiroshige from the Artist Pallet series.
