    Default Hamburg Orchid Exchange 2007

    This weekend is a big weekend at the University Botanical Gardens - at least in my opinion - since there is a 3-day orchid show on... So naturally I went and took LOTS of pictures and thought I would share some of them with you! Hope you enjoy!

    (I tried to get names, but I don't have all of them since the SO was taking pictures too)

    Bc Alma Kee 'Tip Malee'



    Bulbo platynhachis


    Catt maxima


    Epc 'Thai Glow'



    Paph spicerianum



    Paph sukhakulii


    Paph sangii


    Dend Gatton Sunray (+some others)


    Phal 'Prince Charming'



    Pott Chatoyant 'X Purple' (x was unreadable in name)



    I got myself 1 (and was given 1) - a Epc Don Herman and a Epc Thai Glow - will take pics of mine tomorrow when it's a little lighter out!

    Here are some others where I don't know the names - some are quite unusual - if you recognize anything, I'd love to know! (especially the fourth one - I have never seen anything like it before!)

    Wow, what a collection. I could name only a few of them. I love the way they set the shows up to look like you are walking through a jungle of orchids. I can't wait till the end of Jan. for the Miami show. And I have no idea what the weird one is. It's totally cool, and very unusual. Nice pic's, Thanx for sharing.

    That's actually not an orchid, it's a bat flower (tacca chantrieri). Very cool, but it kind of scares me.

    I forgot to mention, the two right after the bat flower really interest me too - anyone know them?

    Looks like it was a great weekend at the university. I imagine it was great fun just to wander around in there--so many lovelies (and one very odd, could eat you alive if you don't lock the greenhouse door at night) to see.
