Tarev, beautiful pictures of beautiful Orchids! Thanks for sharing.
I love the purchases too. We should be able to compare the Dendrobium smilliae, I bought one too in bud a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it gorgeous?!

Thanks everyone! Yes Ursula that dendrobium smilliae is too gorgeous not to buy Big Grin Let's see how it acclimates here, and yours as well. Too much eye candy during the show! But all worth seeing! Big Grin

I just noticed this morning, the back of the lip of the Zygopetalum I got from the show has a distinct print, as if tattooed to the lip:
