It is planned that additional material on this group of plants will be added in due course.



I have run and maintained this site since May 1998. It is totally non commercial. I want it to be available to all orchid growers, but need your help.

The success of the site with its increasing traffic, and the change in internet services many of which are now being charged for are increasing the cost of maintenance. I do not want to make this a pay for use site, but I need asssitance to meet the increasing financial cost.

To continue running this site, and if it is to be expanded, I need some financial assistance to help pay the expenses that will be involved, as there is a limit to what I can do from my own recources..

If you are a user, and in particular regular user, please consider making a donation to help in meeting this expenditure and allow the tide to continue and develop further.
