WE ARE NOW GROWING SELECT SPATHOGLOTTIS CLONES --- I have just added a select number of Spathoglottis clones to our assortment of orchids.
Spathoglottis are known as "ground orchids." Colors range from orange to pink with yellow flares to pink with white flares to yellow with a red lip. These plants are bred to produce unique colors on larger better shaped flowers lasting a longer time in bloom and the plants have more compact foliage. Blooming occurs throughout the year.
As of today, I have the top 3 clones pictured on the Photos page in 10" pots @ $12.50 each. As the plants bloom, I will be able to take better photographs of the flowers.
I will be receiving flasks of the new DM 119 clone soon but these will be small plants - hopefully in 13 cm pots this coming winter.
Manuel G. Caluff, world fern expert and Director of the Santiago de Cuba Fern Garden, has been so kind in permitting us to post his PowerPoint presentation "Cuban Orchids" to our website.
Manuel Caluff started the Fern Garden of Santiago de Cuba and remains the Director. The Garden stores over 1,000 plant species including 360 licophytes and ferns, 300 orchid species, and a 9,500 plant herbarium (BSC). The Fern Garden is the most important fern collection in Latin America.
Manuel Caluff has described 24 new fern species and has written over 60 publications in Cuban and foreign scientific journals including 2 books - "The Magic of My Garden" in Cuba and "Conservation Of The Licophytes And Ferns In The Antilles" in the Dominican Republic.
NOTE -- this PowerPoint presentation is very large (Manuel Caluff's original format which I do not want to resize because of artist's rights) - it may take several minutes to load on your computer. PLEASE be patient - it is worth it. It may be quicker to click on the link and save to your desktop and then open with PowerPoint.
To run as a slide show, when PowerPoint opens, look at the top buttons and you should have one that says View As Slideshow.
Thank You --- Terry and Barbara Glancy
