    Default Wisconsin Orchid Society Show

    I went to the Sunday show, but must have missed you guys. You all probably went Saturday. It was a smallish but still very nice show. Lots of people were purchasing lots of orchids. I gathered that Saturday was very strongly attended. Moving out of my traditional Den. phal comfort zone, I purchased yearlings:
    Cattleya aurantiaca
    Dendrobium anosmum
    Oncidium maculatum
    Oncidium sphacelatum
    Oncidium Twinkle ‘Red Fantasy’
    Phalaenopsis bastianii
    Paph. Maudiae x (Hinying Majukun x Alma Gevaert)
    Vanda tricolor (suavis)

    Thanks for the pictures, they are great. Look like you had a good show, even if it was small.

    I love the yellow butterfly with the yellow wings and white center. Mine is all yellow.

    Thanks for sharing these pics Joe! I would have ventured to this show, but Google said it was an hour and 45 min for me to drive to Milwaukee, so I just couldn't do it. Looks like it was fun though!! Have fun with your new babies, how are they coming along?
