    I've heard about this sort of thing happening, but this is the first time it was actually confirmed - I find it it very disturbing.

    The sad sequel to this is that the flower of the Reserve Champion was stolen during the Conference. (compare the two photos!.)

    I presume it was taken to get the pollen for breeding purposes.

    I am sure that the awarded plants will not be so readily accessible to the public at the next WOC!

    The transportation could have shocked the plants. I spoke to the staff from Eric Young Foundation. The flower dropped on the 3rd day after the show was opened to the public. It was a pity those who visited did not see the beautiful flower.
