ORCHID VIEW
JANUARY 2015
A SUCCESSFUL ORCHID EXHIBIT should be pleasing to look at providing a variety of flowers
that may contrast with each other yet are grouped so they work well together. Any props should reflect the show
theme yet not dominate the orchids. This exhibit would have rhythm so that the eye would follow the different
elements throughout the design. All elements would be balanced and in proportion so that no one thing was
dominant. If you squint your eyes and one element is perceived as jarring then it should be removed, subdued or
balanced with a similar element. If, as you plan your orchid exhibit, you lack ideas then look to nature. The
natural world has a harmony that can always provide inspiration."
NOTE: If you are planning to enter your blooming orchids in our SOS Display, please call
Laurie Stoner at 941.284-8537 or Denny Pavlock at 941-441-6237 with the name of your
orchids by Wednesday, January 1st, New Year’s Day. You may bring your blooming plants for our
Society display to Jack Knuese’s home, 1919 Grove St., Sarasota on Tues. Dec 30th from 9 to 11 am or 2 to 4 pm
or no later than Friday morning, Jan 2nd to the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium (Set-up day).
It is imperative that you have your name on the plant pot and that the name of your orchid is with
your plant.
✺ ✺ ✹ Please pick up your plants from the display between 5 & 6 pm, Sunday, January 3rd. ✹✹✹
PREPARING YOUR ORCHIDS FOR A SHOW
The following article was copied from http://orchidworks.com/showguide/grooming/groomed.htm
You should begin preparing an orchid for exhibition before the blooms are actually open. By doing so, the
flowers are encouraged to open to their fullest potential and present themselves in the best way possible. The
first step is to remove any distracting hardware such as hangers, old stakes, ring stakes etc. Rhizome clips may
be left in place, however, if the plant is established you may remove them.
Using a pair of clean shears, cut off any old bloom spikes or remnants. If the plant has any unsightly leaves, use
sterilized shears or a razor blade to cut the damaged part off. Dress all cuts to healthy plant tissue with fungicide
powder to discourage infection. Be discreet and remove only the dead part of a leaf. If most of the plant looks
unhealthy, you are better off not showing it. Carefully remove any dried sheaths from the pseudobulbs. An old
toothbrush moistened with a little water or rubbing alcohol works well for this purpose.
Insert a stake into the potting media close to the bottom of the flowering growth. The idea is that the media will
firmly anchor the base of the stake while the top is anchored to the pseudobulb. Stakes are available in different
materials with bamboo and galvanized wire probably being the most popular. Here we're using 10-gauge
galvanized wire because it can be easily bent. The judges seem to prefer the use of green bamboo stakes, so that
they do not detract from the display. However, the galvanized wire may be wrapped with green floral tape, too.
Every plant presents its unique challenge and ingenuity will always succeed. Sometimes the stake can be located
on a different side of the pseudobulb where it makes a better line with the inflorescence. Other times such as
here, the bendability of wire solves the problem. Holding the pseudobulb and stake firmly we will give it a slight
bend to meet the flower spike. Be careful and deliberate. We don't want to slip and break the flowers. Do not try
to rush at this stage. Consider what you are doing. Although orchids are resilient plants, a broken flower spike
can be heartbreaking. Here you can see that the spike has developed at an angle to the pseudobulb. Trying to
force the spike to the stake will probably break it. Instead we will move the stake to the inflorescence. Fasten
the stake to the top of the pseudobulb, where the leaf meets it, with a piece of twist-tie or bell wire.

AOS POINT SCALE for judging exhibit
The American Orchid Society Handbook on Judging and Exhibition provides the following point scale
for judging Groups of Plants or Cut Flowers Arranged for Effect. This point scale is similar to ones used by
horticultural organizations throughout the world and is used for scoring exhibits for show trophies and
ribbons.
General Arrangement (Design)
which includes Balance, Contrast, Dominance,
Proportion, Scale & Rhythm
35pts
Quality of Flowers
35pts
Variety
20pts
Labeling
10pts
T O TA L
100pts
Let's look at these four areas separately and see how they relate to planning an orchid exhibit.
Starting from the bottom up...
LABELING - 10 points
Any AOS judged orchid show requires that all orchids be accurately and legibly labeled. A full ten
points of the score is allotted for labeling. There is no excuse for not getting the full ten points. If you
are putting in an exhibit for a society where the plants come from many sources be sure you know the
name before accepting a plant for consideration. Bring reference books or a laptop for spell checking.
Typically, labels are done on poster board cut into strips then the individual labels are cut as they are
done. A piece of floral wire with a "u" bent into it is taped to the back of the label. This light gauge
wire can be inserted into a pot or bent to hang from a branch of foliage. For many years black poster
board with a gold pen was popular. I have used a stone-gray and black calligraphy marker with good
success. Greens, especially olive, are also popular. Just be sure that the labels are discreet and do not
draw attention from the orchids themselves. They should be big enough to read but no bigger. I have
seen exhibits with bright green labels that looked atrocious. Making sure that the person doing the
labeling has good penmanship and is familiar with orchid names will make the job go much smoother.
Having a list of all the orchids being considered for the exhibit is also helpful.
VARIETY - 20 points
Variety, which accounts for 20 points, may sometimes be difficult for the hobbyist to control. If you
are on a committee that is putting in a society exhibit, you only have the plants the members provide
to work with. If you are a hobbyist putting in your own exhibit you only have your own plants to work
with. It is important to know what plants you will have a few days before you actually begin putting in
the exhibit. This will give you ample opportunity to solicit additional plants in any areas that are
deficient. Variety in an orchid exhibit can be many things: variety of color within a genus (such as many
different colored Phals.), variety of flower sizes within a single genus, even variety of colors within a
single species. The glossary of the Handbook on Judging and Exhibition defines "variety" as "Both as
numbers of different genera and variety within one or a few genera". Unusual species can add interest
to any group of plants. Obviously, judges find evaluating exhibits with a great variety of genera to be
easier than evaluating those with variety of other types.

QUALITY
"
"
OF" FLOWERS
"
"- 35 points
"
"
This pretty much speaks for itself. An exhibit with high quality flowers will almost always score higher
than one that may excel in other areas. Keep in mind that this is an exhibit at an ORCHID SHOW,
orchids must predominate. The exhibit with healthy, well-flowered plants will always catch the judges'
eyes. Do not use diseased or otherwise unhealthy orchids. Do not use flowers that are past their prime
or not fully opened. Do not, under any circumstances, use any artificial plant material. Do not
manipulate flowers in any way (other than staking) to improve their appearance. Choose the highest
quality hybrids and best species clones that you can possibly find. Flower quality counts for 35 points.
GENERAL ARRANGEMENT - DESIGN - 35 points
!
BALANCE refers to the visual weight of one side of an exhibit compared to the visual weight
of the other side. An easy way to evaluate the balance of your exhibit is by squinting your eyes and
comparing the visual weight of the left side to that of the right side. The heavier side will appear as a
more dominant blob than the less heavy side. A small grouping of light-colored flowers can have the
same visual weight as a large grouping of dark-colored flowers. A balanced design is satisfying to look at
so try to keep your exhibit visually balanced.
!
CONTRAST is the difference between various elements in an exhibit. This could be a
grouping of pink flowers against a dark foliage background or a small yellow spray Oncidium grouped
with some large yellow Cattleyas. Contrasting elements can be different sizes, colors or forms. Contrast
adds interest and texture to an exhibit. It is a good idea however, to use contrast sparingly.
Indiscriminate contrasting elements can create a confused appearance that is uneasy to look at. Judges
particularly frown upon color contrast (see color flow).
!
GENERAL ARRANGEMENT
This may be the hardest area for the average person to grasp...this is the "artistic" part. It accounts for a
full 35 points of the total score. Let's look at the components of "General Arrangement" one by one. As
you will see, they all interact with each other. Keep in mind that we are discussing the whole exhibit,
not just the flowers.
!
DOMINANCE refers to the attention getting qualities of certain elements against the other
elements of a design. Dominance can be a result of size, form or color. A few orange Cattleya hybrids
would be a dominant element in an exhibit of mostly pink and white Phalaenopsis. It is easy to
unintentionally make our props the dominant element in our effort to make a statement. Keep in mind
that we are doing an orchid exhibit...orchids must predominate.yardsticks with which to measure balance
or contrast. Let's stand back and look at the exhibit as a whole and try to see what our overall objective
is. A successful orchid exhibit should be pleasing to look at providing a variety of flowers that may
contrast with each other yet are grouped so they work well together. Any props should reflect the show
theme yet not dominate the orchids. This exhibit would have rhythm so that the eye would follow the
different elements throughout the design. All elements would be balanced and in proportion so that no
one thing was dominant. If you squint your eyes and one element is perceived as jarring, then it should
be re, then look to nature. The natural world has a harmony that can always provide inspiration.
"
PROPORTION refers to the relationship between elements of a design; a group of dark
Vanda flowers may be twice as big as the group of lavender Cattleyas, the Vanda flowers may be half as
bright, they may have equal balance. Proportion lends coherence and serves to tie all the elements of a
design together.
"
SCALE is the specific proportion of size relationships of different elements.

SARASOTA ORCHID SOCIETY
ORCHID VIEW
JANUARY 2015
RHYTHM is the lifeblood of a design. Without rhythm an exhibit is static and lifeless. Rhythm is
created by the use of the above components in various combinations to create movement within a
design. Repetition of color or form, gradual change in form, size or color and diagonal or serpentine
lines are all used to create rhythm in an exhibit. A frequently used device is a pathway to lead the eye
into the exhibit and create rhythm and movement.
To the novice exhibitor these principals of design may seem ethereal and difficult to grasp. There are
no yardsticks with which to measure balance or contrast. Let's stand back and look at the exhibit as a
whole and try to see what our overall objective is.
JUST WHAT IS “COLOR FLOW ?"
It's the graphic in the title above...that spectrum thing. That's color flow plain and simple. Color flow
in an orchid exhibit means that you shouldn't put an orange in a group of lavenders. The colors should F ~ L ~ O ~ W from one to another gracefully like the rainbow. By sticking to this rule you can avoid
any bone-jarring clashes that might disturb judges and the public at large. By utilizing color flow you
can throw away those "please wear protective eyeware" signs you planned for your display. Color flow
will guarantee that a sense of serene well being will envelop all who view your exhibit. But most of all,
color flow makes sense and provides a useful guideline for placing orchids in an orchid exhibit.
“But where do you put the white ones ?"
White is a combination of all the colors in the spectrum so theoretically you could put white orchids
anywhere without a clash. Yet they are the lightest color and because of that draw attention. Typically
white orchids, especially groups of white orchids, are placed to the rear of an exhibit, this provides
depth and makes them appear somewhat less bright. If you have just a few small white flowers they can
be placed coming off of yellows, pinks or greens with good effect.
"Some color flowers just don't seem to fit, should we not use them ?"
Use those odd color orchids orchids as transitional elements that can bridge between two seemingly
disparate color groups. For instance, many Paphs have color patterns that allow them to fit well
between greens and lavenders providing a bridge between lavender/purple and green/yellow. Some of
the artshade Cattleya hybrids can fill the gap between reds and lavenders. Oncidium complex hybrids
such as Aliceara & Miltonidium have elaborate color patterns that make them ideal as filler between
color groups. Orchids such as B. nodosa, B. digbyana, Epc. Vienna Woods can make an excellent
transition from greens to whites and all bicolor orchids can serve as transitions between two color
groups. And finally, don't overlook species orchids to provide not only variety and interest but fill those
awkward spaces that no conventional hybrid can.
By using conservative and logical color groupings of orchids you will achieve harmonious
color flow.

The Sarasota Orchid Society, Inc.
(SOS) meets on the first Monday of each month
at Selby Gardens. The SOS, an affiliate of the
American Orchid Society, is a non-profit
association with the aims of promoting the
development, improvement and preservation of
orchids through the dissemination of
information concerning the culture,
hybridization or development of orchids, and
generally to extend the knowledge of orchids.
Our membership dues at $20. for
individuals and $25. for families are a great value.
These dues help us acquire quality speakers for
our monthly meetings and pay for special events
such as picnics and repotting demonstrations.
Our fund raisers, Orchid Auction, Orchid Show
and Raffles raise additional funds to educate the
general public about orchids and their
conservation, provide scholarships to local
students who will study horticulture, and
support orchid research programs.
“Orchid View” our Orchid Society
newsletter, is published monthly by the Sarasota
Orchid Society. It is included via e-mail at no
charge for members.
Deadline for articles, photos and
information for the newsletter is the 15th of the
previous month.
