There will also be a display table showing pots of bulbous and cormous plants grown by IBSA members. There will be a discussion of these plants during the Symposium. The next 3 days will be dedicated to field trips to the surrounding areas to see some of the plants discussed, in their natural habitats. Attendance at the Symposium is not restricted to IBSA members.
