    Question Showing an orchid when you cannot find a show nearby??

    I have a question... What do you do when you have a plant budding like crazy and no show to show it at?? My B. nodosa is going mental with 9 spikes averaging 7-10 buds per spike and my lady that would normally take it along to show has no more shows til spring! If it had hurried up it could have been shown in October...but then I had nothing really blooming. Unlike now...it seems every Cattleya I have decided to wait until after the big show to start throwing buds all over the place. Some are a little burned due to my company keeping me busy the last couple weeks...but it's not anything that can't be cleaned up for a show.

    Wow! You do have the gift. And that Cattleya must be huge, as I know how big those strawberry planters are.

    It kept falling over and it broke a petal off the first flower to open...so it got sat in the empty strawberry pot. lol It does take up a little space...

    Have you considered taking it to judging?

    Check the AOS website, and click on the "Judging" link to find locations and schedules.
