Orchid garden news: March 2020
We did the monitoring of flowering orchids in our orchid garden early this months. The good news is: there are still more than 20 species in flower! And we have meanwhile nearly 50 species there. A Crocodeilanthe sp. and the tiny Stelis pusilla presented most flowers during this monitoring run.
Of course we discovered species that we haven't yet identified down to species level. Especially the Stelis sp. and the Pleurothallis sp. make the life of interested amateurs (and probably of some specialists) too really.
Hopefully our friends Marco Montera and Francisco Tobar can help with the identifications.
