    Default Victoria state show in Australia

    Just came back from a trip across the tasman sea for the biggest show that I have seen by far. There were lots of orchids enough to fill a whole stadium with. The sales area was just as impressive as the displays. I took so many photos but here is a few to share will post some more in the following weeks such a shame I couldn't buy any plants however I admit there were quite pricey $35 for a standard Phal I would not expect that from a show. It was great to see more of a younger generation getting into orchids and talking to people that are so passionate about plants. Saw some new gadgets and demonstrations on repotting well worth the trip!
