Maggi (& all show posters), thank you so much for your efforts.  They are greatly appreciated by those of us unlikely to see many of these plants otherwise, or so well grown and presented.

Once the web team has cracked the 'smell' function on the forum, perhaps they might consider developing a 'how is this plant grown so well' button for the show threads ;) 8)

That would be a great asset, wouldn't it? I must say,  when I am at the shows, I do take particular care to check that some of these truly breath-taking plants are REAL and not ceramic or culinary inventions, such is the level of perfection we see! ;D

Some great pictures of some amazing plants! I'd love to know more about Ian Christie's Nagaland-lily, has it been identified?

It is a gorgeous lily, isn't it, Bjørnar? I'm told it went up to Joint Rock committee and was given a Preliminary Commendation. It's being called a form of L. mackliniae.... but some have doubts!
