    Default Fontfroide Abbey Orchid Show

    I also visited the orchid show in the Abbey of Fontfroide (France) on Saturday 5th October. It was the biggest one I've ever visited. There were at least 8 orchid exhibitors (from France, Italy, Switzerland, Taiwan, Malaysia). I ran from one stall to the other, forth and back. At the end, this is what I bought:

    Rossioglossum grande. The blooms are all open now and measure 12 x 14 cms (4.5 x 5.5")

    I'm trying to post more pictures in subsequent posts, but somehow it doesn't work. Will try later.

    Flesh eating plants. No orchids, but also nice.

    NoId Phal. Actually I wanted to give this one to my daughter in law, but I kept it for myself at the end. For her I bought a NoId Dendrobium Nobile (her favorite orchid).



    I'm sure I forget some. There are a few I've mounted on cork and haven't photographed yet (Maxillaria tenuifolia, Cattleya intermedia puntata, another Cattleya intermedia).

    Great buys, Jesus. I particularly like the Ascofinetia and the pink form of Den farmeri.
