Gesneriad Hybridizers Association meeting 2012

A highlight of every Convention is the Gesneriad Hybridizers Association (GHA) meeting. This year's meeting is at 3:30 on July 4, 2012, and the speaker is Vivian Liu, the person behind the "An's..." hybrids.

Those of you on Gesneriphiles have already seen the teasers posted by Dale Martens -- I asked her if I could share them here as well.

There will be quite a variety of Sinningia, Kohlerias, Smithianthas, and other new hybrid gesneriads available on GHA raffle table, including Sinningia 'An's Nyx':

and rhizomes of Kohleria 'Designer's Jewel Case', a Ruei-Chau Lin (Alfredo Lin) creation:

The GHA also has a newsletter three times a year and a seed list - a very good value for the low membership fee!
