Default Pacific Orchid Expo Haul

Well not really a haul. I picked up a Paph. fairieamum, and a Paph. tranlienianum from Dean at Paphiness. I also got a Phal. equestis 'Orange' from Ten Shin Gardens that I had pre-ordered.

The show was lovely, and there were so many beautiful displays. I have to say I was shocked by the number of vendors selling NOID Phals. I asked one about it and she said that nobody really knows what's in the breeding of Phals and anyone who tells you they know the registered name is lying! Huh!!!??? I just looked at her and said "Not if you buy from a reputable seller.." and walked away. Really? You're going to give attitude to a collector who for the most part knows what she's doing. I still can't believe she said that. Honestly I expected more from a show like this.

Wow - that is odd to be told that about Phals

Where ever you go, there you are ...

I got duplicates of Den. subuliferum (much bigger than the one I already have and in bloom!) and Masdie ayabacana (much bigger also), a replacement Lepanthe elegantula (I dried out the last one), a Neo hydrid (NoID pale yellow/pink in the picture) and my first Bulbo (contortisepalum)!

My orchid noob friend got an Aerangis luteo-alba (he likes mine so was an easy sell for Kawamoto) for himself, a Phal equestris and an Onc. nelly isler as gifts.

As for the NoID phals and cyms, I didn't even bother. I think they are very commercial, high volume vendors that normally cater to the big box stores. They were sort of set apart from the reputable vendors.

It felt less crowded than last year but I went on a Saturday last year. I thought it had a smaller vendor representation than last year but my friend disagrees.
