Hi everyone.

John – I’m a bit slow catching up and am just now viewing your first lot of show pic’s.

That’s a great assortment of pictures of the Entry Display at your show and it certainly shows just what can be grown in your area. I can count ten different genera and there’s probably one or two I’ve missed.

I especially like the light coloured variegated Nidularium in Pic. 4. Is it a light coloured form of Nid ‘Miranda”?   Whatever it is, it’s “beaut” and I wish I had it in my collection.

Thanks for sharing, and now to sort through the rest of them for more comments.

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

John – Now I’m onto your second lot of pictures which I must say is almost as good as being at the show.

What an interesting plant that hybrid of yours is in the first picture; it seems to have taken on the characteristics of both parents with the foliage colour of the ‘Angela’ and the inflorescence shape with multiple paddles and yellow flowers from the ospinae gruberi. The big question though, is where does it get the recurved leaves from? Maybe the unknown pollen parent of ‘Angela’. In any case it’s now proved itself and is deserving of a registered name.

Andrew’s Neo 'Sunfire Pheasant' is an attractive looking plant as well, what size is it?

The Neo ‘Shark Fest’ is unusual also and seems to have taken on the fine lineation of the Rosea Lineata (I don’t know this plant, but imagine that going on the name it is lineated like Rosea Striata), but where does the wide striping come from?

Now for the  pictures in your post of Feb 29th and first up the Champion won by a Tillandsia.

I don’t know how judges can judge a champion of the show, it must be very difficult judging the best in each class against each other and a bit like judging oranges against watermelons as the genera are all so different in size shape and colour. The question they have to ask for instance is, is that a better Tillandsia for its type than the others are for theirs and to answer this question all of the judges must have a good knowledge of all of the various genera they are judging to make that correct informed decision – I wouldn’t be a judge for quids, I compare them to football referees where they’re always wrong according to the untrained eye.

Obviously untrained growers and members of the public always have other ideas on who the winner should be. Personally (from the photos) I like the Neoregelia the best, but then I’m a Neoregelia grower and naturally lean toward them. The only thing I can see going against it from a show perspective is the unevenness of the lineation. I like the colour, and the shape is great, but obviously in the judges’ eyes the Tillandsia had that something “extra”.

The other thing the untrained eye doesn’t pick up on is the tiny blemishes and faults which are easily missed, but all come into the equation when the points are being awarded. I don’t know about N.Z. shows but I imagine they are judged on similar lines as those in Australia and what untrained people need to understand is that it’s a completely different system to the monthly point score competition that many societies hold and where the members award places simply based on what appeals to them the most, in other words, a popular vote”.

Overall, the pictures are great and the plants are great as well, and thanks for sharing them with us John.

All the best, Nev.

Hi everyone.

John – Regarding the ? Nid Miranda in question, do you know the grower; or is there any way you could find out who he/she is and ask them the name of the plant? I had a though that maybe it was a hybrid bred from ‘Miranda’ but there’s nothing shown on the register.

Now I’m onto your pictures posted today, and at last I’ve finally caught up with you.

What can I say except WOW! What a great array of quality plants starting with the glorious ‘Kiwi Vivid Lady’; is there no end to the great plants from this grex? I hope the name of this one is pending registration as I can’t find it on the register at present.

The second plant is no less spectacular with subtle similarities of that favourite from the past Vriesea ‘Megan’…..Beautiful

What a great specimen of a xCanmea and certainly a great achievement to grow a plant to this size without any serious blemishes on the leaves. What a great clean example of this bi-generic.

I’ll be anxiously awaiting the name of the next one, what great colour.

I’m not very familiar with the genus in the next pic (? Hohenbergia), still great, clean looking plants nevertheless and I love the colour of the one on the right.

I’m looking forward to reading more about the next two which you can hopefully find the names for.

Finally Vr, ‘White Cloud’; what a delicate and unusual looking combination of colours. You’ve done a good job John and thanks once again for sharing with us.

All the best, Nev.

Hi all, Images above all now named.

Nev will try to sort Nid name.
Just about every Vriesea the Maloys made deserve registration, the ones with Kiwi as a prefix are on the short list.
'Sunfire Pheasant', is registered, plant looked about 225 dia.

Totally agree Nev.
That Vr White Cloud is beautiful. Mine has a lot more green but that one is amazing. Doesn't look to have a mark on it.

What a wonderful show! I can only sit and admire those beauties from afar. Thanks for sharing the photos and allowing me to see some stunning plants. Please keep posting photos of other shows too. Nev, I really appreciate you sharing your photobucket pictures with me.

Have a great day all.

Hi everyone.

John - Thanks again for the pic's and going to the trouble of attaching the remaining names.

Kayleen - The colouring of Vr. White Cloud reminds me of a Neo species I have called  Neo. nivea (See pic.) Do you have this one?

Conrad - Where have you been? I suppose hiding in that kitchen earning some money to spend on more brom's.

All the best, Nev

Hi all, Nev In regards to ospinea var gruberi x Angela, below I's some images of the mother plant taken yesterday. Plant is still doing very well and about to flower again. The leaves do slope down so I'm not that surprised by the above result. This plant may be the pick of the grex, its turned out quite unigue with that high gloss shine. We are waiting to see the flowers + for pups to start before we think of registering it. Will have the prefix 'Jags Hunua..... something. We are in debate at the moment.
