    Geoff, I believe you brought this plant to the right place to receive the recognition it deserves. Sorry for your disappointment but with a beautiful display like this Dendrobium amethystoglossum it has proven to be in the top and not to be overshadowed. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    If I saw this in person, I think I would just stare, agape, and speechless.

    Geoff, both of your plants and blooms are outstanding !! IMHO deserved to have been taken into account at your Soc. meeting. If there is any consolation for you from all the way across the pond, the same thing happens here with my entries on the show table. Let me hasten to say, I am not a sore looser (as I am sure you are not) but having a bit of knowledge about what judges should be looking for, when I put my plant on the table and have a look at the other plants entered, I am usually able to tell whether my plants ought to be in the mix of awards.
    Congratulations anyway, your blooms are beautiful as usual.

    BTW ( boast, boast) this plant got "best Dendrobium in the show"... ( or possibly best species - I have had two different reports ) - at Malvern International Orchid Show at the week-end.one in the eye for the judges in my own Society who did not rate it. When I collect the medal or cup or whatever ( from my own Society President ) at the next meeting, I shall be unable to resist getting a dig in...

    Although this sounds like a new show, it is the successor of our (UK) biggest orchid show, which has moved around the country as the host organisations have had financial difficulties, in turn at Newbury, where it first got to be so big and successful, and then at the East of England Show ground at Peterborough - where the same thing happened. Malvern was the Three Counties Agricultural show - leaving the orchid tent I watched some of the cattle judging - quite a different thing altogether - and has a large following from the farming community, so the attendance would be good I think , and the farmers seemed to be interested to come in and see the orchids too. !
