Alas, the Dendrobium is not mine.
There are some 90 orchid Societies in the State of NSW. Most are General Orchid Societies where the members try to grow everything.
There is one Cymbidium only orchid society. Several species only orchid societies and quite a few Australian Native Orchid Societies.
One advantage being in the Southern Hemisphere is that at Christmas there are the least number of orchids in bloom.
