I did not think that these subsequent posts belonged anywhere in out recent threads, so I am starting a new one: Orchids Up North!
What do you guys think?
I will be posting on primarily 2 things, The Orchid Judging from the Great Lakes Judging Center. My letters of transfer have been accepted and posted in Florida and Michigan. I will report on what comes before Orchid Judges in Michigan. From what I have seen in my research they award a lot of species, Paphiopedilums, Phalaenopsis and Phragmipediums. A good deal of this material may be plants that many of us do not grow but I would like to introduce all of you to these plants.
The second main area of posts would be things from both the Ann Arbor Orchid Society and Michigan Orchid Society. Both are a half hour from me, one east, one west.
A third area of posts will be on orchid shows, what's for sale and what some exhibits look like from the "far north!" But those could be posted in our show/shopping thread that already exists.
But in summary it might turn out to be a very interesting and informative thread. I have an Ann Arbor Orchid Society meeting this Sunday at 2pm. Stay tuned.
