Default TIOS - Sales Area

Sales area is larger than the WOC in Singapore in 2011. This is an amazing four rows of sellers in a separate building......maybe 50 retailers selling their plants, hardware and other things to the public. It's an amazing spectacle. Took these photos during the sales area set up so it wasn't complete. Just to make sure everyone realises.......this is the best orchid show in the world every year.

Phrag Don Wimber on the sales bench....













Not sure what the hell this is but impressive anyway........I loved the burgundy leaves.




The biggest cattleya I have ever seen. I am 193cm of 6' 4" and that's my hand in front of the flower (I have big hands). This was for sale but I can't tell you the price as I don't remember. It was relatively cheap though.

Thanks for sharing. So what does a body do? How to resist all that eye candy. Oh man it must take an inordinate amount of self control not to shop till yuu drop

Wow! Makes me long for the New York City orchid shows of old. Too long has it been since our last real orchid show.

With so many wonderful plants being bred these days I am hopeful that all orchid shows grow in prominence.....
