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 2021.
Our monthly benching highlights include:
January – our first virtual competition for 2021. We have never had a January competition before so it was fascinating to see what is in flower, in what is normally a very hot month. Four examples include the encyclia cochleata, maxillaria cucullata, a dendrochilum filiforme and an unusual dendrobium Gerald McGraith.
