As of 10/20/2015 - Pine Ridge Orchids / Pine Ridge Sanctuary no longer has any orchids available.
I have kept photos listed on the website to show what we had been doing.
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.
ORCHID BREEDING MOVIE
I have just added a short 21 MB movie that Jennifer Brown ("Pine Rockland Composition" movie producer) made while she was shooting the movie about our globally endangered Rock Pineland. Hope you enjoy.
Thank You --- Terry and Barbara Glancy
