I am hoping folks with prior experience at the auction can chime in on here. Is this typically a hobbyist driven auction, or is it vendor driven? Are there only the so called 'rarer' plants or a wide spectrum? Since it will be major trim time for me, I was thinking of bringing some plants to the auction, but want to get an idea what it is all about. TIA.

If it is like past AGA auctions, it will be primarily stocked with hobbyist plants with a smaller number of plants from vendors. There will be a wide variety of plants. Contributors can donate part or all of their income from the auction to AGA. There will be both open bidding with an auctioneer and a "silent" phase where potential buyers walk around the tables and write down their bids on a sheet of paper next to the proffered plants.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there is a straight 70/30 split for sellers and the AGA. I believe the silent auction is on some specified items as well, not every item in the auction.

What is this AGA auction?
It is at the annual Aquatic Gardeners Association (AGA) convention, which is being held in Atlanta next month. There is a thread in this section that completely explains it and leads you to the official convention link. :)
