Some orchid collecting pictures.

February 4, 2013

New year and hopefully I can go to a rainforest later this year and search after new species.

In march I will have a photo exhibition at the Botanical Gardens here in Gothenburg. Will show some pictures in large format of many of the small orchid species that I grow. They have “Orkidefrossan”. A month in march with special focus on orchids. Last year thay had a LOT of visitors to the greenhouses. I hope this exhibition will result in new contacts, maybe sponsors etc. And then I could go to Costa Rica or Colombia. Time will tell…

Now I am looking for a job as I for the moment work less than 50%. Hard times but it will get better soon. I have a feeling that this year will be a great year!

Here are some pictures from the last orchid trip to Costa Rica:

Look at the right bottom corner. A small human. Then you can imagine how big these oaks are.
