The plants are judged and awarded and there is a short discussion about their history, cultivation and merits ... Tea and coffee are available and members have a chance to chat with the each other and the guest speaker and ask the questions that have been bothering them for ages. "Why won’t my Phalaenopsis flower?" is the most common; no question is too silly to ask ...'
