    Default Michigan State University Orchid Show photos

    As always, some nice plants at the show. Due to abject laziness on my part, only some of the photos are here.

    To start you off, a rather "puny" chid. (Can you believe anyone even bothers to bring such a "wimpy" plant to a show? :rofl: )






    To anyone unfamiliar with Soph. coccinea, it really is this eye-searing color.






    Got a kick out of this one ... reminds me of a duck's bill. Maybe someone should show it to AFLAC.






    I'd say this is the darkest, richest red Phrag I have ever encountered:






    This one was a beauty I had never seen nor heard of before:

    i am guessing that Oda is Odontioda? that striping looks like odontoglossum or lemboglossum. really cool looking hybrid. i like that phrag too. amazing red color.

    Anyone who has killed a Sophronitis coccinea knows that just keeping them alive is a challenge. Blooming them takes expertise, and to have one with a dozen flowers.... all I can say is that I bow to whoever the grower is. I hope it got a CCM (Cultural Commendation of Merit) from the AOS. I hope some day to try it when I get things set up properly for it. Until then, it's a dream of mine.
