    That is gorgeous margo! How long have you had it? I know over here you have to have owned the plant 3 months before you can show it at the orchid society I am a member of. It might be very different for you guys or you might have had it longer than that, If it fits the criteria I can see you getting your ribbon for that beauty.

    Carrie, I only had it for about a month, but there are no such restructions (at least I don't know of any) at our local society.
    But even if there are (and I don't know) I am sure people would love to see it!

    Yes Margo I am sure they would love to see it too as I would in person, I will just hold off sticking my nose in it which I have a terrible habit of doing!

    Carrie, you can do it in the morning. I noticed the "fragrance" is not that strong in the morning. That is why I suggest to be used for dinner table...LOL
