Go for it. It's great fun. I haven't set up my own display yet but, I try to get as many of my blooming plants in as many shows as possible. My society enters displays in multiple shows every year. I have 10 plants in the Maryland Orchid Society show this weekend. I look forward to seeing how they used them in the display and if I received any ribbons etc... That's the other fun part of this (for me anyway) ribbons and trophies to display.
