WELCOME TO MIRANDA ORCHIDS
Thanks for taking your time visiting this site.
The main (but perhaps eventually not the only) subjects to be found here are Orchids from Brazil, and I will try
to have as many different aspects of them covered.
I am an Orchid Taxonomist with the main specialty
in Brazilian Laeliinae (Laelia, Cattleya and related genera, for the non-scientists) who also happens
to be a commercial orchid grower. This site will include plants available through our company in the U.S., and
these reflect the highest quality on Brazilian species. Other selected plants will also be listed, look for all
plant related material under "Price List" on the left sidebar.
The different pages will be updated at different
rates and the date of last updating will be shown at the opening Home page. This will make easier for visitors
to find out when something new is added.
Below there is a sample of what else you will find
in the site. For navigating the different sections of the site, use the folders on the left side bar and/or links
bar at the bottom of each page. This way you don't need to scroll all the way up or down every time you want to
go to another page. Any suggestions or comments just e-mail me.
» Pictures with descriptions
These are a very important part of the site. This
page, Brazilian Orchids, will be updated periodically (as frequently as possible, that's what I can tell right
now) and will include selected plants, habitat pictures and everything else that might be of interest for orchid
» Thorny issues
This is one of the aspects of the Taxonomy page
and the idea is to provide people with clues on how to separate closely related species or just help identify no-so-well-known
entities (which can be genera, species, varieties, color forms, etc.).
» New entities
Also in the Taxonomy page, this section will report
and comment on recently described entities from Brazil.
