What's New!

Well a year has gone by and I have not added to this area but I have been building the Encyclopedia and traveling to Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic to see orchid species in their natural settings. This to me is my favorite orchid experience, the challenge of finding these incredible plant creatures in their jungle setting. The first time one sees an epiphytic orchid actually clinging to the bark of a tree is a moment of astonishment especially if it is in bloom as well. Generally, to see orchids one needs to get away from the cities and the farms as well. My best orchid hunting has happened on foot but I have also rode horses and been in canoes.

The links below will show the picture but to see the written account use the alphabetical search above in the Internet Orchid Encyclopedia to go to the main species page. There has been so many new photos and genera added in the last month that I have not had time to add to the "what's new" section. I suggest looking through the alphabetical list to see all the new species photos. The photos that I have been receiving from donors are stupendous and there are too many to mention. The photos of Wilford Neptune's AOS Award winning plants are not to be missed and Dale and Deni Borders digital camera pics are also quite a treat. I have left the photo links below even though some of them are now 6 months old. Some day I will have more time to add to this area.

Check out the new Costa Rica Page, I did a 15 day orchid trip to the jungle, see the orchids there now Take Me To Costa Rica
