    The third picture in this set of 4 was a really big plant. It was quite spectacular.
    The paph was super-sized too.

    The 1st pic in this set was displayed on a table and the it was taller than me (190cm; 6'3").
    The Lc. Mini Purple was exactly as the name it was really tiny. The black tags you see throughout the pictures was about the same length as the diameter of the pot. Really cute.
    The oncidium was also really really small. Again, see the tag for a size comparison. The tags are the size of business cards.

    The Phrag. Andean Fire is a gigantic plant. How many spikes do you count? And some are not even in the picture.

    WOW!

    Thanks for taking us along to the show!! I love all of the color. I have to say I am really partial to the blue cattleya, Lc. C. G. Roebling 'Don'.

    Cheers,
