The two following pics are of my purchases. At the show & sales spectacular last weekend which in travelling time is a 6hr+ round trip, a bus load of orchid nuts (inc myself) decided to attend. The purchases at the show were 6 small Vandas & Ascdas & a mini catt. The 2 larger plants came from a nursery very near the show who has an extensive orchid area.
The large plant, no flowers is V. Robert's Delight 'Blue' and was $50, I got it for free as I had a $50 voucher I won last year, to use at the nursery. The Pink, Ascda Marissa's Little Doll 'Bonnies Wish' was $45. I checked a catalog that listed this plant back in 2008 had it at $70 for a large flowering size plant. Having seen their idea of LFS recently, this plant is XXXXX LFS.
Very nice, Roy.
Nice going Roy!!
Very nice purchases Roy. I made a few purchases myself during the recent holidays , all cattelyas except one Psychopsis papilio in bud. Your Aussie prices are very scary!! My Robert's Delight 'Garnet Beauty' LFS was $12. I bought 6 flowering mini catt for $5 each. Only the Psychopsis was expensive $17.
Yew, if you saw what I got a week or 2 ago as Large Flowering Size @ $65.00 you would be ill. I was when I open the parcel. Not buying from that nursery again.
Infact, here is a pic. The pot along side the plant is a standard 6 inch ( 150mm )
I'm already ill, even from here!
Very pretty Roy!

Looks like quite a few vendors fertilize heavily and ensure that they get a spike even with a a small plant and sell it as flowering size.
