Well, they are all orchids and they are all winners.
Southern Suburbs Orchid Society (SSOS) Committee has decided to continue the monthly members Virtual Voting competition for 2021. This enables members to show their flowering plants at their best, or if they are unable to bring them along to a meeting, such as too big, attached to trees, flowering display period is too narrow (i.e. Stanhopeas) or members who are not able to attend the monthly meeting.
The rules for this competition remain the same:
- Each member is eligible to submit up to 5 currently-flowering plants for the specified time period and members can vote for the flowering orchid they like; similar to the in-house popular vote contest, but does not include the formal official Judges vote.
- Members place one vote for their favourite in each of the three member categories OPEN, INTERMEDIATE and NOVICE.
- The monthly virtual voting competition is located in the Members Only section of our website.
March Members virtual vote winners:
OPEN: Vanda hybrid ‘Pak Chong Blue’ – Herbert Aberl
INTERMEDIATE: Burrageara ‘Nelly Isler’ – Mary Caruana
NOVICE: Gongora Galeata – Maria Fraraccio
