    There's a kovachii in the NCOS display. My first time seeing one. Very exciting.

    That kovachii was gorgeous. I feel like there were a lot of slippers in the displays this year. There was also a Michael Koopowitz with 5 spikes and the longest petals I've ever seen on one. Tried to take a picture, but it came out kinda wonky. IMG-4742.JPG IMG-4733.JPG

    Overall, a very good show with some wonderful plants. Walked away with a few new minis from J&L for my vivarium :p.

    I think the MK belongs to Jeff M of CHAOS and my recollection is that he brought it to the 2018 Paph Forum. Unfortunately it looks like the pictures I posted of the 2018 PF are gone.

    I was there on Saturday. Sorry, I don't know your real name, or I would have said hello.

    Jeff grows the most amazingly huge specimen plants. Every show, he stands out with plants so well grown, like this. Kudos, Jeff.

    Nice to hear there are other ST members going to Richmond as well! My real name is Cody, if we happen to run into each other :). I'll probably be there for a while Saturday morning.

    Was there all day yesterday and will be there Sunday afternoon, so unfortunately, won't bump into you. It's a beautiful show!! VOS always does a really nice job and great vendors are there.
