    ok so I wasn't one...

    But how interesting that in my orchid society's winter show we had both Champion and Reserve Champion from the same genus!

    Champion - Paph Aragon 'Katherine' HCC/AOC-QOS



    and Reserve Champion - Paph insigne



    I'm still a bit suss on whether this is a pure insigne.. the petals with their line in the middle looks too much like it has some villosum in it..

    but hey, maybe I'm just cut because my one and only plant open at the time didn't win...

    Pterostylis nutans



    thanks for sharing in a bit of the Five Dock RSL Orchid Society Winter Show.

    cheers
