3. 1st place Dendrobium named Enobi Purple owned by Tony Tan

Organised by Ipoh Orchid Society (Persatuan Orkid Ipoh) and Ipoh City Council, with the aim of creating more orchid hobbyists, I think the society needs to generate better awareness amongst the public by at least updating their abandoned official website.

5. Champion Phalaenopsis

Anyway, although I can’t tell a good orchid from a bad one, I believe the competition was stiff, judging from the winning entries.
