2020 Boca Raton Valentines Orchid show
 
I dragged the family to this show on sunday...very small space but a great presentation of flowers and some cool vendors which is always fun.

there were a lot of really large plants which i love and so that was fun.

amazing!! also, your t-shirt made me laugh. :D

DirtyCoconuts 02-10-2020 08:34 PM

Lol. It is true!

Jeff214 02-10-2020 09:21 PM

hear hear!

I've yet to see a Den. spectabile (flower) in person... one day.
thanks for sharing! Did you purchase anything?

DirtyCoconuts 02-11-2020 02:41 AM

I did, but only two lol

I had to get a small red dragon after seeing the 6í monster on display and I got a killer deal on a bear root native orchid for $20 that is a stunning plant with several active buds. I assume they will blast but still a great sign for the vitality of the plant

Iím several whiskeys deep and cannot for the life of me recall the name of this plant lol

wisdomseeker 02-11-2020 02:43 AM

Second the t-shirt... pretty cool.

You are definitely in a good location for some great orchid shows. Thanks for 'bringing those shows' to people (like me) that are unable to attend!

Epidendrum nocturnum



My pleasure!! In a past life I used to go to a lot of diving and ocean expos and, similarly, documented and shared them for more remote forum members. I guess old habits die hard...and this area is a hot bed of dive expos and orchid shows lol

Awesome orchids! I particularly love that L. superbiens and the Brassavola hybrid (Iíve been liking those the more and more I see them). And that shirt is hilarious. Also, this is the second year in a row that I have blasted my Den. spectabile spikes😑 I just want to have some of those gloriously wonky blooms!

DirtyCoconuts 02-11-2020 12:19 PM

The superbiens and that dawn henry were very special. I kept finding them again and again throughout the afternoon

Both of my spectabiles are growing a LOT but no spikes.
