    Good News! Francisco Miranda of Miranda Orchids will be our speaker on Monday May 14. Mr. Miranda is a world renowned taxonomist, but more important he knows where to find beautiful plants in Brazil and take outstanding photos of them….. He will be bringing lots of his beautiful Cattleya among other plants for sale as he specializes in Brazilian species….. come enjoy

  • It would be a good idea to include the names of those orchids that you show on your website.

  • I keep missing these shows but I will be at this one :D

  • Nice Blog…I love to read your posts.

  • To Whom it may concern,

    This may be of particular interest to the Central Florida Orchid Society members/followers. Please feel free to disseminate it among all your networks and interested parties.
