    You know, that was a really cool plant. I can't remember what it was, but Hoa probably will. It has really wild twisty petals...

    BTW - Hoa is much better looking that his picture, and I always hate having my picture taken so I end up looking like a deer in the headlights.

    Hoa - no picture of the fabulous winning phal??

    The very dark milt in the photo next to me was the grand prize winner for Milts. Hoa and I agreed it was the darkest one we had ever seen. It is darker than the photo suggests, almost black!

    Well, it's gorgeous! (I'm glad to see I have good taste...now, if I just had less of it, I'd stop buying plants!)

    Hi grubea,
    Well, that plant is Schomburgkia undulata, the winner of the best orchid in show trophy!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Phalies at the show

    Pictures of a few phals at the show! Some of these are amazing. The second picture is the best Phal in show as Diane requested. The vendor(s) who exhibited these phals, they followed the Japanese style in training the spike and displaying these plants. Very pretty!

    Default Dracula orchids, Vandas, Unusual Orchid, and one of the best exhibits

    Dracula orchids are very cool and shady growers (first pic)! They were encased in a vivarium with continuous misting! You could see the mist coming out, cooling the plants! A few outstanding vandas (third pic) and a very unusual orchid (second pic, a cycnoche probably)! And finally a picture of Diane taken next to the most impressive exhibit at the show (or at least the one we think it is anyway)!

    CHEERS. Hoa.
