Perhaps I was expecting too much but I was quite dissapointed with the orchid show I attended today. There was hardly anything interesting that you couldn't find outside of an orchid section at a plant shop. I left with the feeling that I could have saved the gas money and had more fun looking at my own collection and watching the full MASH 4077th marathon on FX! *
60% was Phals, 30% phrags/paphs, 10% assorted (mostly encylia and cattaleya) and about 3 dried up Pleurothallids and handful of Masdevallia. *No well grown pleuros or draculas and not one bulbophyllum (that I saw). totally ho-hum. I'm sure not everyone loves the weird and wild stuff but you'd think someone round here other than me would wanna grow the "difficult" rare stuff.
George CP How was the orchid show down in FL? Was there anything cool at yours?
