Florist Aminiasi Naidike was among women who competed in the Flower Show in Suva on Thursday.

He was the lone male contestant in the Suva Orchid Horticulture Circle’s Flower Show Advance Category’s Floral Court Display.

Competing in a women-dominated field did not stop him from competing.

“Flower arrangement is my talent,” he said.

“I’ve been a part of this group for seven years and have spent five years competing in the Advance Category. Being the only male was a challenge, but it motivated me because not only females can do this. I do because it is my love for nature.”

Mr Naidike challenged other male aspiring florists to never shy away from what they liked and one should continue doing what he or she loves.

He won the first prize in the Advance Category Floral Court Display.
