    Default Windsor Orchid Show

    Best of the Best. I wasn't going to post these pictures because they are so bad and because when I was editing them for the forum some idiot snuck up behind me and cropped out all of the names. These are all of the Best in Show in their particular categories.

    Cattleya's

    Very cool (pun intended) wine fridge full of little beauties and a Vanda alliance plant that I know someone has posted here before.

    The first one of your couple of phrags is actually a paph. Probably a lowianum hybrid, and the likely name is on the tip of my tongue. I have the second one in my collection, butcannot think of the name now . also see Dendrobium glomeratum there. Some great plants at this show !

    Wow. Good one. Yes the 4' Den is most likely Dendrobium glomeratum. Den.victoria regina is unbelievable.

    Thank you for the correction Geoff. I guess I like the slipper's even less than I thought

    So, how was your first time as a vendor at a show?

    Not to bad Ray, thank you. Didn't make money but then I didn't expect to our 1st time out. Learned a lot about what and what not to do re our display and sales tables. The Windsor Society is top notch when it comes to taking care of their vendors. We didn't have to buy food for the three days and the organizers/volunteers bent over backwards to help in any way they could. We do have to get more KelpMax in the next couple of weeks
