Orchids grow all year round so it is not difficult to find something flowering during every month of the year. At Southern Suburbs Orchid Society (SSOS), members grow a wide variety of orchids and seldom have difficulties finding something to bench each month. Here are some examples of what we exhibited in our monthly competition for judging in 2019.
Our monthly benching highlights include:
A wider variety of orchids shown at our April meeting included vandas, cattleytonias, beallaras, howeara, ascocentrum and a lophiaris.
Our March meeting included a variety of laelia and cattleya, doritis, sartylis, brassia as well as vandas, maxillaria, miltonia and zygopetalums.
February is our first competition for the year. This is not the time of year for Cymbidiums, but a wide variety of orchids are in flower including Beallaras, Cattleyas, Epidendrums, Liparis, Stanhopeas and a Stenoglottis woodyii.
