    Default My haul from the Hamburg orchid show

    I got some really gorgeous plants today. Trying to be a role model of self control for other members of the forum I restricted myself to just 4 plants, and here they are:
    1) Lc. Mira Royal 'Chocolate Delice'
    This one is a beauty, it is a very strong cardamom fragrance

    This picture with the flash shows the glossy and velvety textures of the tepals and petals

    2) Lc. Pink connection 'Abural' This is what I have deciphered from the name tag, if anyone can check these names out, it would be very helpful.

    They are all beautiful, Amey! I think Pavel (Paul) will fall in love with the Slc. Red Jewel when he sees it. He loves those mini orchids.

    When do you get to go back to India?

    Cheers,
    BD
