The annual show of the National Capital Orchid Society is now in session, if any of you are in driving distance of Washington D.C. you may want to go - it's open tomorrow (Monday, 10/08/2007)! A warning, though: the weather prediction is for temperatures in the low 90's and the room containing the show is hotter!!!

Attached for your viewing are some pictures that I took at the show: they're mediocre (I'm not posting the MANY bad ones!) but I think that they're good enough for general interest. (It's very difficult to take decent pictures in the show, it's in a windowless room and people light their exhibits with a varying number of incandescent lights on poles: not only is it generally dim with a lot of shadows, but the colors vary because people use different types of bulbs. Unless you haul in your own lights et al, it's hit or miss.)

[I didn't know where to post this - there's no "Show" Forum - and I'm too lazy to post the Paph and Phrag pics separately, so...]

Russ Vernon's (New Vision) NOID is almost definitely Paph. Angela (niveum X fairrieanum).

Yes, I also think that it looks like an Angela. Flimsy name tags were used and the tag on this plant slipped down into the foliage when they put a ribbon on it - I didn't want to set off the local Show Police so I just listed it as "NOID".

I love Tanya.
I think I'm going to have to get another paph, even though I swore I wouldn't until the one I have blooms again. It's been 18 months.

Wow, the NOID and the Sorcerer's Dream are fantastic. Hmm, how am I gonna get these?
Angela (the consensus ID for the NOID) is somewhat available, you probably can find one. Based upon the other pictures that I've seen, this one looks pretty typical to me. As for the Sorcerer's Dream, try begging Hadley Cash of Marriott Orchids!

That's fine with me. Angela is one of my favorites and the blooms last forever.
