Hi Maite

Thank uyou for your message and comments. Its great to know that the work isappreciated.

In New Zealand we have a number of native orchids, but in the main they are terrestrials, with comparatively small flowers. Like most
terresstrials they are difficult to maintain in cultivaiton.

My native orchid slide show includes photos fo tghe more spectacular, and the ;link to the NZ Native Orchid Group to which I belong has much interesting information.

I note your suggestion, and I will provide some more information

With thanks and kind regards
