    Default Orchid Show

    It was the largest orchid show, it was the smallest orchid show. It could have been either for it was my first show, but I really enjoyed it. I have been into orchids for less than a month but I find it to be fascinating. The show was put on by the Platinum Coast Orchid Society and was held in Cocoa, Florida. The vendors were very friendly and provided a great deal of advice. I thought the prices were also reasonable and I brought home 8 new additions to my collection. I see that you can easily spend a lot of $$$$ on this hobby.

    Ha Ha Ha. Money - yah it does flow in the hobby. But shows are a great place to pick up some great plants. They are also a great place to gain knowledge and an understanding of what is out there. If that club is close to you, I would consider joining and getting even more out of the hobby!

    Congrats! I went to my first show in April, and I think taking home only 8 new babies sounds VERY reasonable!!!
