    Hi Kathi! I am SO SORRY if my text was misleading: these were some of the exhibits. (Though I did get a load of great scented stuff including... wait for it... som fab BARE ROOTED catts: scary, but they took very well and are all shooting already. I also got a fragrant Dendrobium kingianum with two keikis; one of the keikis was already in flower and after flowering I removed it and gave it to a friend- but only cos there was another smaller kaiki on the plant... O and this little Dendrobium plant must have been pollinated while at the show because it now has a very large pod that is still swelling.)

    You are so right, Jason! It was a mouthwatering cymbo: deliciously rich spikes spilling out EVERYWHERE... and the sultry colours are so grown-up! I wish it really was mine (see my answer to Kathi) cos you would be welcome to come and worship!

    Thanks Alex! There were some AMAZING exhibits as always, including a Dendrobium (one of the yellows like chrysotoxum, can't remember which) the size of a small cow... and COVERED in bloom. I took many photos but I don't know where to begin... I just chose to post these 4 because I had to choose SOMETHING! Maybe I shall post another set of exhibits from the show...

    Oh Dear, I was not at all aware that KeiKis produce flowers while still attached to the parent so I removed all of them from my Kingianum. Is that a major Boo Boo?
