    Default SEPOS Show at Longwood Gardens

    I just returned from the SEPOS show and sale at Longwood Gardens. The displays were nice, as usual, but I was a little disappointed by what the vendors had to offer. I only bought 3 new ones which I will share pics of with you later. Am not too upset with not finding alot to buy since I have 8 new orchids coming this week from an online purchase. Of all the displays there I thought this one was the best. It was so crisp and clean looking and the plants were perfectly displayed and in pristine condition. I love the large multi orchid displays but so often they are so overwhelming that you go into sensory overload. This one I thought was perfect! You could just stop, relax and enjoy each bloom. Hope you enjoy.

    You are so right, the simple displays allow one to concentrate on the plants. Most displays overwhelm and sometimes the smaller plants go unnoticed in the bigger displays. I like this style...thanks for sharing!

    Great pictures. What is the Paph in the bottom left of the first picture with the yellow and orange/red blooms? I want that one (well, one like it).

    Thanks, Brandon. The name on the tag was Paphiopedilum Lippewunder. I really want to find one also.

    It does look like a nice and quiet corner...

    Do you happen to know the name of the center piece of the first picture, which is also shown on your 3rd picture?
