We made the three hour trek to the Triad Orchid Society show today and walked away with two awards. Paph Wössner Black Wings 'Gabby' is my second AM to WBW, and Nottara Lucy's Sassafrass 'Tightie Whitie' is my first FCC. Both plants are named for beloved pet snakes that have passed.

Very well done. That FCC is awesome. The WBW has potential when the plant grows bigger.

The judges said both of my AM WBW have FCC potential if I can coax out a fourth flower on a more mature plant.

WoW great job in growing them so beautifully Tony!

Congrats on the FCC! It must feel so gratifying.

I have yet to get my first FCC, though it is really tough in my center. Only 2 has ever been given in 30 years.

Congrats, Tony. Both are very impressive ones. As to the Nottara...it's a multi genera hybrid with Zygopetalum ? I can't find much information in the net.

I couldn't believe it. I grabbed a few of them as seedlings from SVO on a whim a couple of years ago. When I decided to take that WBW up for judging I looked around for other stuff I had blooming and might be worth taking along, I saw that Nottara compared pretty favorably to the other awards but I was thinking it would be an HCC or maybe another AM. I never thought I would have an FCC so soon, this was only the second time I've submitted plants for judging.
