Not exactly redlands, but a typical Australian Orchid Society Show. One display, plus a sales table. Orchids are those that flower in Autumn, Sydney, Australia.

Wow, Arthur,

A treat for the eyes. Do members sell their own plants on the sales table? Do vendors attend some of these shows?

Commission on members plant sales pays for some of the prize money. The local orchid society charges 15%.
Vendors come to the larger shows where there are multiple orchid societies exhibiting.
Vendor only thingos are called orchid fairs or similar. They should be avoided at all costs. If you don't go you can't spend.

Amen. Today, I went to Orchids Ltd. (orchidweb.com) for the first time in weeks and managed to spend not one penny.

Can't believe my resolve is so strong. I thought I'd cave.

Is the display, then, only that of the society sponsoring the show?

Yes, this is the typical orchid society "show" here. A single orchid society. 112 plants exhibited by 17 orchid orchid society members. This is a "closed" show so that only members belonging to the Society can exhibit.
