This page comprises different aspects regarding
Brazilian Orchids that I think might be relevant or just interesting for growers. At this point, two regular columns
are included, as following. Any comments just send me an e-mail.
The "Photo section" page will feature
varied subjects according to merits going from rarity to flower quality to just plain weirdness. Each photo will
include some information related to the subject. This page is going to be subdivided in the future according to
the amount of pictures, something like a maximum of 5 or 10 for each sub-page. The exact way I still haven't decided.
The updates probably are also not going to be in a regular timely basis.

The "Species" pages are, well, that. Besides
basic information about the featured species, habitat information is put whenever available to add something new
and useful to help in cultivation. In the start, these will mostly comprise the Cattleya alliance,
but I will try to have it the most varied as possible in the future. These pages are organized alphabetically for
easy future access. As a final note, the flowering season information on the species is according to their natural
habitat in Brazil, and for the correct time in the northern hemisphere one should add 6 months. I decided to do
that as a lot of people keep asking me when such or such species bloom in the habitat.
