I hate to say it, but this show really declined from last year. Andy's is always amazing, but the other vendors were mostly selling phals, vandas, and catts. Michael Koopowitz had a display that was pretty nice, and these photos are mostly from that.

Harold Koopowitz:

Paph Memoria Billie Machado


Paph Earnest Read 'Dallas' HCC/AOS


Paph charlesworthii




Paph Lynleigh Koopowitz


Paph henryanum 'Big 'n Bold'


Southland Grand Champion

Julia, slight correction on the name...it's Harold Koopowitz. I think Michael is the name of his son. All in all he did have some wonderful plants!
That cochleanthes was also variegated!
Some of the paphs are his new "mini-paphs' or teacup paphs.

Thanks for the pictures.

The cochleanthes really caught my eye. I have one in bloom now and I think this year the blooms are larger than ever before. They love to bloom, especially since I moved it under T5 lights.

I was there as well. This was my first visit to the Southland show so I have nothing to compare it to, but the Huntington grounds & conservatory are worth the visit alone. The artwork in the gallery is amazing & the grounds are top notch. Only came home with a couple of plants - a Jumellea comorense, an Angraecum for a friend, and a nice Gastrochilus acutifolius from Andy. I woulda brought home a couple of Vandas but the greenhouse isn't quite ready yet ...
