Monteporzio 2000

In Italian
The 5th edition of international show "Orchidee in Centro", organized from the ALO (Associazione Laziale Orchidee) in Monteporzio Catone (small town near Rome - Italy) has unfortunately had some defection of exhibitors for via of one movement of date of the last minute. In fact 14-15-16 april was decided for a long time ago, than misfortune it wants, is coincided with politic elections. Therefore the show has been moved to the date that we know: 28 April - 1 May. Some  international exhibitors who had already given availability therefore have had to renounce. Although this, the show is remained to a highest level, for amount of exposed plants and for their  quality. Great absent of this year the genus Phragmipedium that the previous year was exposed everywere. Large the amount of Phalaenopsis whose hybrids continue to be the most popular. There is from saying that also the exposed "commercial " hybrids are however of great quality and look at in nearly every stand plants from the colors and the particular tonalities.

                          The readers excuse to me for my attention on the slippery orchids but  they are my preferred ones   ; -)

               In stand A.L.O. they make beautifulst extension of if some Vanda, a Paphiopedilum delenatii and above all a wonderful hybrid of Paphiopedilum Sanderianum.

One mention of merit to the V.I.P. Garden that has prepared one risen of forest with a lot of plants and also sounds in one of the greater stand. Their stand exhibited one remarkable amount of particular kinds also, arranged with care.

Also the Azienda Orchidea  of Mss. Alessandrini, in its small stand, exhibited one remarkable amount of truly exceptional plants. It is gone from a remarkable Cymbidium species 20 cm  high, to a particular clone of Paphiopedilum rotschildianum, to the Paphiopedilum fowliei and Saint Swithin, a wonderful display window with beautifulst miniature (between which I mention a Dendrobium unicum   from the exceptional flowering)

     The stand of Mr. Riboni had some remarkable hybrids of paphiopedilum (a pair of wonderfull yellow P. armeniacum x  primulinum) and instead they lacked  the phragmipedium, plywood but from a Mexipedium xerophiticum in bloom. Strangely  this rare (and small) species has been arranged quite hidden, when, in my humble opinion, it must have an honor place.

After go to the stand of Giancarlo Pozzi that it had carried all its own hybrids. Task that very soon some of its " Di Pozzi something " will become
             famous. In particular I signal the Bc di Pozzi Cannero (Brassavola flagellaris x Cattleya Mossiae) with beautifull rose flowers, without however forgetting the others.

To signal then, even if is unprovided of photo (sorry), the stand of the german Mr.  R÷llke with beautifulst hybrids and species of many genera, and with many flask from 5 or 25 seedlings. Beautifulst some Neostylis (or was ascofinetia.. bah, however they were much pretty).
