    Default December Orchid Society Award Winners

    I was very lucky at our December orchid society meeting. I entered three orchids for our judging tables and won on all three. I also won the award for best species for the Cadetia taylori. The big suprise came when I was presented with the award for best exhibitor. That award is given to a home grower and a greenhouse grower who have earned the most points showing their orchids at shows and society meetings over the course of a year. Points are given for entering plants and additional points are given for those plants that win ribbons or various awards. I was really suprised to win since our society has so many experienced growers who raise orchids much nicer than mine. I was also elected to the board of directors and won one of the door prizes which is the nun's orchid pictured in the last photo. I like it in that I have never seen one with this coloration. In our gift exchange I received a cymbidium that is starting to spike. It was a great day. I think i should have played the lottery. LOL

    Awards won:
    Most Fragrant---Blc. Golden Chieftan 'Akuki' 1st place
    Cadetia taylori--- 1st place and Best Speicies--this one has been blooming all autumn.
    B. Little Stars--- 1st place -two weeks ago when this was shown it had 13 spikes

    the final pic is of the Nun's orchid I won. Hopefully the pics will post in the above order.

    Congratulations, Bill, especially for the Best Exhibitor award!!! I'm very intrigued by the orchid in the last photo. Is that a Phaius or a Phaius/ Clanthe hybrid ?

    I am not sure about the Phaius. I did not notice until I got home that there was no tag, I will have to wait until next meeting--in a few weeks--to find out. I have never seen this color before so imagine it is a hybrid. I will try to remember to post what info I find on it.

    Wow, good growing! I agree that the last orchid is crossed with Calanthe. Maybe Phaiocalanthe Kryptonite 'Red Streak'? Regardless of the name, it's lovely. Congrats!
