    Default Fascination of Orchids International Show

    Fascination of Orchids International Show (formerly at South Coast Plaza) was held last week on Feb 10-12/2006 at the Orange County Fair and Expo Center.

    I managed to take a quick peek at the show before rushing to the airport for my conference. Now I am back, hence the first batch of the pictures! Hope you all enjoy them.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Amazing pics, Hoa! And we missed your posts of late!

    Is that a two-tone paph in the foreground of the first photo? What is it?

    Thanks for the pics!

    Hi Julie,

    It's nice to hear from you. I hope that I got the plant you asked for correctly. I believe it is Rossioglossum Rawdon Jester.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Thanks Hoa!

    Having looked at some Rossioglossum pics, I think you're right. From your photo it looked like a microanthum lip on some funky paph. That's what made me wonder.

    By the way...you're pretty e-veal yourself, torturing me with the last photo you just posted!

    I am NOT E-VEAL, unlike someone here!!!! Heheheehe ...
    That picture was taken especially for you, Julie! I know you would like a big BIG floofy Floofy gorgeous semi-alba catt like that! I was quite taken by it as well. The semi-alba catt in the picture, I believe is called either Lc. Taida Swan "Taida" or Lc. Taida Swan "Swan". Hugemongous pristine white petals/sepals and an solid contrasting ultra-ruffy red/magenta lip! (And the Lc. Midred Rives is one of the parents for this grex, the other parent is Lc. Spring Squall!)
    Cheers. Hoa.
