    Default NWOS Show

    I've been quite busy lately and one of the reasons why was that I chaired the Northwest Orchid Society show that took place last weekend. It was a nice show with some great plants.

    Some of the exhibits:

    Some slippers.








    Paph. Bel Royal that received a 77 point HCC/AOS-you should have seen the "stalks" on this plant.

    Some Phals







    A friend of mine thought this one looks like the face of a Chinese dragon-I think he's right.

    I really love Disas, but admire from afar.

    This hybrid received an AM/AOS


    Beautiful Disa uniflora

    Congratulations Susan on helping to put up such a fine show. The blooms were really fantastic and like you , I'm always fascinated by disas. I've ever only seen disa 'live' once and that was during the WOC held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thanks for the photos.

    The 4th Phal reminds me of a Phal I had called Center Stage 'Pro Cockleshell'. It got crown rot due to my inexperience and negligence. I kept it alive for several years hoping it would through a keiki but it never did and this past year I finally dumped it. I'd love to find another but the only place I've seen them may not be a reliable vendor....not the one in southern Florida where I believe the cross originated.
