For thousands of years, the Japanese culture has held its native orchid species, Neofinetia falcata in highest regard.
3 years ago, we decided to spotlight the Japanese style of evaluating this species when judging in Japan. It is decidedly different from the criteria used by the American Orchid Society, and we think, quite interesting. So, Saturday afternoon there will be an informal (by Japanese standards) judging of Neofinetias for everyone to observe.
Watch the website when we get closer to the date for more specifics, but this is a popular aspect to our Summer Hummer and we are enjoying watching it grow!
Informal lectures will take place before judging.
Official judging will start at 2:00 PM. A discussion of the results will follow the judging.
Event is sponsored by the Fukiran Society of America
