Can I officially call myself an orchid fan/grower? Well, I participated in an orchid seminar today.
Two topics were covered: Jewel orchids and taking care of orchids in winter time.
Lots of interesting new stuff. Also plenty of new faces.
And there was a small market on the spot. One could purchase a plant that could possibly be never found in a regular shop. Relatively rare plant that is.
This was cheerfully called a "make it yourself" phalaenopsis farm. These here are 3 year old hybrids, bred in Lithuania.
Some of the jewel orchids. Grown rather for their beautiful foliage than flowers.
A jewel orchid on the left. And some other kinds of orchids in bloom.
There was snow outside. One of the first this year...
