    Aeridovanda Blue Wave - an aerides/vand cross. One of the few cattleyas at the show - we have more members growing cooler, and few growing warmer - its a UK thing. Then the Society stand- made up of plants which could not be entered in the competitive classes for one reason or another ( only one entry per class per member, for example), and finally an interesting bee orchid - did not get its name, flower about twice as big s the native UK species.

    A nice pendant flowerd Cymbidium on one of the trade stands - the plant had 6 spikes and the price was the sterling equivalent of about US$60 which was thought very reasonable. Aussie bred, we were interested in that way back in its parentage was a Cym devonianum hybrid bred by our president ( Keith Andrew) who had specialised in that area of breeding. The maseddvallia is caudata ; the next plant, no Cyrtochilum edwardii , used to be Odm. edwardii - most unusual colour, I have never seen this species except in books. Finally a nice example of recent EYOF phrag breeding.

    A couple of scenes at the show ; a specimen Dend. kingianum, and another cymbidium on a trade stand - this one with 6 spikes, and I counted 32 buds and flowers on one of them. Almost enough to send me home to turn down the heating and clear a bench to make space...

    I did not get the names of any of these - the white and yellow odont is really pure Oncid crispum, although no doubt the product of several generations of breeding odont "hybrids".
    The red and whoite is an Odontioda - but now again an oncidium... A nice miltoniopsis - flowers smallish but a lovely solid colour ; and then an old paph, lots of insigne in there , but beautifully grown with 12 or 13 buds and flowers. We do have rather a high standard of cultivation in this Society- which I can say without lack of modesty since my own entries in 9 classe were not good enough for even a single third prize this year !.

    WE have one class for "any three hybrid orchids - and we have one very good cymbidium grower ... his entry makes up two of the pics. Also a superb Masdevallia caesia and the perhaps out of focus but maybe worth showing Papiolanthe labelled as teres, but which I' think is hookeriana.

    The pink/red one is Cochlioda tosea - a beautifully gron plant ; the yellow one is an Oncidium spedies ( always has been an Onc - its not an ex Odm) but its name escapes me - I have not grown it or seen it for yonks.
    Also a Sarcochilus hybrid - although the difference between hybrids and species in this genus seems so small - in the ones we get to see in UK, since Australia closed its doors to sending us orchids ( it seems ) - that I wonder why anyone bothers to hybridise at all.
    Finally a nice Masd hybrid.

    Two examples of Coelogyne cristata - we get a lot of thoise since they are very well suited to cool or even cold house culture it seems. The orange one is now I think Encyclia vitellinum , used to be an Epidendrum.

    Whoa - end of marathon.

    Geoff, i know youve done a lot of traveling but have you ever managed to make over here to taiwan? we have a weekend market (as well as a daily market i dont get to make it to very often) that rivals any international orchid show on a daily basis... it's simply sick, the variety, quantity, and quality of the orchids here... and the price is mind bogglingly cheap... i suggest a visit if the opportunity for travel comes round... if not, i am still curious about the legalities of sending flasks, cuz i would be more than happy to send a little love to any OT member whose country will allow it...or even an anonymous package if one was so willing ;-)
