Orchid and Flower Photography and Talks by Ron Parsons


A very large and confusing (taxonomically) genus of popular and beautiful orchids, these are commonly known as “Dancing Ladies”. This artificial grouping of a few hundred species is found from southern Florida, through the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, the majority coming from South America. All species have inflorescenses that arise from the side of circular to oval, somewhat flattened pseudobulbs, and some species can have several hundred flowers on a spike. This presentation shows plants from most groups, with cultural information.
