Tamkang Anniversary Celebration hosts "Beauty of Orchids" Orchid Exhibition "Lady of the Night" Wins the Oiran

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Tamkang, the Office of General Affairs held an orchid exhibition from November 5th to November 7th from 9 AM to 5 PM. The theme of the exhibition is the "Beauty of Orchids," gathered from all over the country, a total of 307 orchids were exhibited. Chairperson Dr. Flora Chia-I Chang went to see it in person around 10 AM on November 6th and took photos with the award-winning orchids.

The Dean of the Office of General Affairs Ruey-Shiang Shaw explained that every year the orchid exhibition presents a different appearance. This was the first time in the year that Tamkang co-organized with the Taiwan Orchid Breeders Association, thus providing many new varieties of orchids within the exhibition, some of which have not even been publicized. This orchid exhibition can be said to be "The First Issue Nationally." “Every orchid has a story of its own, we welcome everyone to join us for the exhibition.”

One of the evaluation committee members, Shi-Zhang Sun, who has been committed to orchid cultivation for a long time, explained that this review is divided into four various categories: Phalaenopsis Orchid, Cattleya Labiata Orchid, Paphiopedilum Orchid, and other rare species. The awards and overall rankings of each group are selected in order. A total of 135 orchids gained recognition. The championship was won by the "Brassavola" cultivated by the "Charm Sun Phalaunopsis Garden" in Tainan. The white Brassavola from Central and South America has a small and lovely appearance, and its colors are usually white and green. It is also called "Lady of the Night" because it emits fragrance at night. The award-winning orchids are planted in full pots, and nearly a hundred flowers bloom, just like the starry night.

The "New Floral Breeding Award" is a new addition to encourage floral farmers to research and develop new varieties. Thus, there were many orchids bred from different species such as the Mormodes, Cycnoches, and the Catasetum orchid which gave amazing floral shapes and color. Within the exhibition, orchid growers have successfully cultivated the unique and famous orchids of "Paph. Armeniacum" and "Paph. Micranthum" originated from China, one of which is bright and dazzling in yellow, and the other is alluring and bright in red. There were also orchid varieties from the desert and the polar regions, which were also mesmerizing. Orchid lovers are highly recommended to visit the exhibition.
