2016 MSU Orchid Show 20160228

A friend helped me get out and see an orchid show at MSU Botanical gardens, acting as my assistant. Holding lighting and hauling my camera bag.. was very enjoyable and just what i needed..

It was exhausting for me, but I need to do this more.

These are exquisite flowers I have never seen before. I imagine they must be difficult to grow. You have taken them very well, thanks for sharing.
Colin.

Thanks Colin!

Here's the whole shoot in a dropbox folder...


https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ywi0oa3e...UWlhOGuKa?dl=0

1400px images, no watermarks. If you see one you like and it's not big enough (say to do a screen background or make a print for yourself) Just ask and I'll put one up.

Yes it was. I'm going to enter their photo competition next year using one of my photos taken yesterday. I grabbed an entry form while I was there..

I don't have a particularly green thumb so I can't imagine being responsible for caring for, or propagating some of these orchids. their pollen is finer than dust. they actually collect it on a brush to pollenate their plants and do crosses/breed their flowers.. in exacting environments.

Great images I don't know about these orchids but one of the best developments was the use of micro culture to propagate what were once very difficult plants. Over here the garden centres now have many orchids at very reasonable prices compared to what they used to cost

They were serious about their pricing. A small flowering plant with one bloom was $25+.


The ones I was photographing were 250 on upwards of 375.

There were some with 100+ blooms and major stalks supporting them that were not sold or sale I overheard someone say they wouldn't part with it for $2500.

I only saw orchids growing once many years ago in KEW Gardens, London. They were in one of the big glass houses and growing in a glass case which was all temperature and humidity controlled so I imagine yours would have had similar treatment. One can pay big money take them home just to watch them die as the conditions are not right.
