Yes, but who gets to decide whether there's an affinity?

Yup I did, and we do. I'm starting to wonder if the idea
of using video isn't a bit ambitious. Maybe we should just walk
aisles and show the stuff closeup, then have exhibits people
can come up and see after, and ask questions about?

Hey, my miniscule P. rotundiflora is blooming. I'm letting
it bloom so I can have a shot at ID'ing it. This hot weather
caught me by surprise. I had to go home and water my plants,
many of which were rathe dried out.
