Way back on November 3rd, my brother and I went to the Tower Hill Orchid Show. We had a wonderful time; it is always great to see him and since his camera was way better than mine, I let him take the photos of the plants we admired. Here are the photos:
This Dendrobium cuthbertsonii was actually a very tiny plant with intense orange color. It stood out like a jewel at the show.
These Cirrhopetalium (Bulbophyllum) rothschildianum ‘A-doribil’ have a small ball-like organ that moves indepently of the rest of the flower and attract pollinators. We saw these last time and we were both still fascinated by this plant.
Sophronitis wittigiana is another orchid that has a very pretty color.
Vanda ‘Robert’s Delight’ was only photographed because my nephew, my brother’s son’s name is Robert. LOL!
Lepanthopsis astrophora has to be the smallest orchid at this show. I put my finger into the shot to give you some perspective of this size of this plant. Incredible!
Phalenopsis ‘Dtps Yu Pin Lady’ wowed us with her pretty inkspot-like pattern.
Schomburgkia ‘Wellesley’ has a profusion of upside-down flowers.
The Habenaria medusa is aptly named. We had never seen anything like it!
Phaphiopedilum ‘Angela’ seems to be drawn by a pointilist.
Masdevalia ‘Copper Angel’ is from a Peruvian rain forest and needs to be misted up to 8 times a day.
Pleurothallis nipterophylla is unusual because the flowers grow from the center of the leaf.
Masdevalia exquisita is another cutie from the Peruvian rain forest.
Everyone was photographing this superb arangement of Paphiopedilum superbiens. Stunning, aren’t they?
Isn’t the green on this Vanda sanderina ‘alba’ refreshing?
