The Orchid Society Show

14 04 2012

Like any troubled country we try to forget our day-to-day problems and strive for normality. The autumn show of the Orchid Society of Zimbabwe is one such event. A selection of the orchids are in the album below.

The Orchid Society of Zimbabwe has a small premises at the Mukuvisi Woodlands on the way to the airport. Quite a few orchids were for sale though I did not buy any.

Orchids flourish here. I have one that has never flowered so much as this year. However, a friend of mine brought me one from the Island of Madeira, very similar to the 2nd one in your 2nd column, but I cannot get it to flower. I’m going to change the soil and hope for the best.

You CAN be too kind to orchids! I have some cymbidiums (cimbidia?) which get just water and they flourish. They are just in a bucket with charcoal in the bottom and coarse pine bark on top – no soil as such.

Years ago I bought excellent publication at Harare Showgrounds on orchid care. I think the author was Mr Pope (Zw). I have misplaced it. Does anyone know how I could replace it?

I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing problems
with your blog. It appears as though some of the
written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this
happen previously. Many thanks
