    OK... I think I am going to the International Orchid Show in Miami tomorrow....
    Please take photos if possible so I can also see how the orchid shows over there are done and what are on display.

    BTW, one of our local POS private collectors and commercial breeder was nowhere to be seen during the show and when I asked I was told that they were in the U.S. attending (and perhaps one of the vendors) in some Orchid show over there. I'm not sure exactly where ... maybe in SF... but could very well be in FL? Sorry but can't mention the name for ethical reasons. (initials C.P.)

    Just keep your eye out for some attendee or vendor from the Philippines selling some native Philippine species.

    Have fun at the international orchid show.

    Cheers!

    The show featured only few species of Philippine orchids.
    I saw very few indigenous species displayed every POS shows.

    Again, this show featured mostly foreign orchids and hybrids.

    It is sad that they don't focused on the Philippine indigenous species.

    There were more plants but it was a little past noontime and I was getting tired and hungry. The weather was getting hot so I decided to call it a day and I still had to do some orchid shopping at the stalls lined outside the display area. I only bought two plants - a phalaenopsis hybrid , P. Sara Gold and a philippine specie, Den. Bullelianum.

    I'll post the photos of the plants I bought later in the other thread.

    I guess the shows focus more on the more "showy" types of plants.

    Come to think of it .... it is also difficult to focus mainly on just Philippine indigenous species - for starters it may not be the flowering season of a particular species, another is that indigenous species are getting harder to come by nowadays and perhaps most are being "regulated" or protected from being collected to prevent them from becoming extinct in our forests. Still another which may be a major factor is the general viewing public who come to watch the show - very few are knowledgeable or would appreciate the smaller, often microscopic sized flowers of the indigenous species. I guess showing off the more floofy, large and brilliant colored hybrids is to attract the attention of the general public. Don't you think so?

    That's certainly possible, but in an area that is so richly diverse in orchids, you would think they would at least have a large section devoted to them in the shows. If I were to go to an orchid show there, I would like to see the things I don't, or rarely, see here

    I have an idea on those people !!!!
    Actually there are rumors that most of the orchids , hoyas and ferns being sold in an international show are directly sourced from the CP and APC tandem.

    Most of their orchids are being bought from Lung Center and wild collected plant traders from all over the country.

    Then they raised them for few months in their so called farm somewhere in Cavite. with all the wildlife permits certificate from DENR in which the inspectors would think that all the orchids and plants grown in their farm are laboratory grown ???? Then the tandem would buy wild collected plants then pass them as farm or laboratory grown ????
