    Anyone know which frog exhibitors will be at the upcoming expo? I believe UE will be there, but haven't heard anything regarding any one else....

    I hope too. But my kid wants to come too, so that could slow me down a little.

    We will be there!
    I want Polypodium formosanum or rare aroids (e.g. metallic alocasias) if anyone has some for sale/trade.

    I've got a prior engagement so probably won't be there until towards the end - hoping to pick up some frogs but I'll probably have slim picks at that point. Fingers crossed nonetheless. Probably some moss and plants too

    Back from the show about 30 min ago. Wouldn't call it disappointing, but aside from Phil @ The Green Oasis, and Mark @ Understory, there wasn't a whole lot to see... If you are in the market for cork bark, grapewood, substrates, etc, Northern Gecko was there, and one vendor (can't remember the name) was selling Exo Terra terrariums for cheap.

    Chatted with Phil, Mark, Bernie and Tom for a bit, put some faces to names, purchased some plants, and isopods, left after about 45 min.

    We just left. Not much there besides UE and Greenoasis.
    Picked up a few frogs from UE and a few things from Phil.

    Carlos, I saw you there (Bernie pointed you out) at UE, buying frogs. What did you pick up?
