WOW!!! I think I need to expatriate to Taiwan. The laws there must be nice, ie no governmental thugs over there that we have here (for those that want more proof, ask me about my time with Mrs. Kovach by PM). I see at least 15 plants I want, most of which are illegal here.

Great pictures!!!! If only it wasn't such a long flight to get there...

I'm curious to see so many not for AOS judging signs. Usually there are a couple of plants at every show that, for one reason or another, the owner doesn't want judged. But there seemed to be a large percentage of plants there that were specifically not for AOS judging...

I was wondering the same thing...

The plants are fantastic btw. I love that the species are represented well.

I was at judging a while back and one of the judges came back from the show last year an I thought it was value related. Something to the effect of Its worth what they say it is, until someone else says it isnt.

THANK YOU very much for a great collection of photos.

Thanks for all the great photos. I particularly liked the Paph. Bruno cross. Naturally there were many more that I liked as well. Thanks my friend.

Wow.... those multi-florals make me want to give up and saell my collection.

Truly more than impressive. There was one adductum X stonei hybrid that truly left me speechless.

Thanks for sharing. The plants are so perfect! wow
I think I saw a few no AOS juding ones that could have been winners
I noticed a complex x hangianum cross too. The hangianum didn't show though in the bloom though

Typically "not for AOS" is used when the exhibitor wants to wait to have the plant evaluated (it might not be fully open or another spike/bud may be on its way) OR it has already appeared for evaluation (as not to waste the judge's time) OR they don't want to pay for the award or grex registration (uncommon!).
