    Default Greater Cincy Orchid Show at Krohn Conservatory

    Hey guys---

    Got back a little while ago from Krohn Conservatory. Had a pretty good time and got a couple of good orchids. The conservatory itself is huge, and orchids grow on the trees that are everywhere. Here's how it went in pictures:
    1-The View from Eden Park cliffside
    2-Krohn Conservatory in Eden Park
    3-The waterfall in the main room
    4-Psychopsis in the Conservatory

    no 11, could be trichoglottis rosea,
    no 12, is trichoglottis atropurpurea, not philippinensis.
