    Default Barcelona Orchid show

    I know it's already some time ago, but I didn't have time to post before. On September 28th and 29th there was the annual Orchid Show in Barcelona. Since I've become member of the orchid society that organizes it and I had a week holiday, I could help with the built up of the event. It was a lot of work, but very rewarding. Three days surrounded by (in MHO) the most beautiful plants in the world. These are the few that came home with me:

    From left to right: Odontocidium Hansuelli Isler, Paphiopedilum Transvaal, Phalaenopsis amboinensis, Cattleya Hybrid (I'll post the names of the parents later on to see if anyone knows the name of this cross. I know it's a cross between Cattleya intermedia and a Laelia but I don't remember what Laelia)

    This one also came home with me. It's a hybrid but I've no idea of the cross.

    I would love to go to that show! Also, I really want to go to Barcelona itself! Btw, I also have Odontocidium Hansueli Isler; it is a lovely orchid.

    Also, what is the name of the red/peach Phalaenopsis adjacent to Odont. Hansueli Isler? It an unusual and rarely seen colour.

    I'm afraid it's "just" a NoId, but yes, it's a beautiful color.
    Btw, if you want I can tell you when the next show in Barcelona will be. Probably, as usual somewhere in October next year. But before that (last weekend in May, first weekend in June) there is the show in Arenys de Mar (a little town on the coast, approx. 30 km north from Barcelona). I'll post the exact dates here for everybidy who might be interested.
