Interesting article, but there are certainly a disproportionate number of glaring spelling errors/typos in the few paragraphs:

"While a string *or* orchids"

"There will also *bee* 10 California vendors"

"There will also be six experts addressing orchid-related topics in a *form*"

"Orchid growers and lovers can even be included in the greenhouse display, "Pathways through Paradise". They allow growers to bring up to six on the Friday before the show." (six what? Lovers?)
