    Default Tehran's International Flower Show... And the PHALS

    Yesterday I visited the show with two of my dear friends... Well worth the long distance!... There were lots of Iranian and foreign exhebiters... Most of the displayed stuff were Anthuriums, Roses (WILD rose hybrids!), Alstromerias, Strelitzias and Lilies... Plus some VERY OLD cycads (around 700$ each... very cheap! ) and all sorts of african violets...
    Well these are the Phals displayed there...
    P.S: Dudes... this is Iran... Don't expect much... But I love the available orchids anyway...

    Oh goodness....if only it wasn't so expensive to ship things!!! I would be the first to line some up for you! I should talk to my friend that is going out of business and see what the cites through him would cost. He's going out of business but he is also international.
    Your pic's are beauties....i'm a phal lover. Florida's exotic things are wasted on me, I love the den's and phals so much. And my catts, they are the ones that give me my best flowering plants..... But the phals are soooo my favorites!
    Thanks for sharing
    Connie
    ...i'm guessing most of us would have loved to have seen the pic's of Iran too!

    So, did you bring any of those beautiful Phals home with you?

    Unfortunately it was just a flower show (couldn't buy!) But one of the orchid suppliers said that some of these will be available within a month or two... So I'm just waiting...

    Those are some beautiful flowers. Maybe now that you've made contact with some local orchid suppliers, you'll have access to more plants without all the crazy shipping and import fees and hassle. Sounds like the show was wonderful.

    Hey Mohi, these are great. So what is your climate for growing like in your corner of the world?
