    Default Oregon Orchid Society Show

    Spent yesterday down in Portland at the Oregon Orchid show. It's the largest show in the Pacific Northwest. There were some amazing high quality plants. There were 33 plants nominated for AOS awards. Not sure how many actually received awards, but someone involved with the judging said about 10 plants received AOS awards.

    Paph. Macabre received an FCC. Huge flower and beautiful


    Laelia jongheana-awarded (I think it got an AM)


    Very nice awarded Phal.


    Best First Bloom Seedling


    Gorgeous Vanda. Got nominated, but not awarded. Color is a little funky due to the fluorescent lighting, but the most amazing deep blue.


    For those who like floof-Best Cattleya Alliance


    Best Oncidium/Odontoglossum Alliance


    Laelia purpurata-photo doesn't do it justice


    Just sitting there begging to be photographed
