Telipogon species – Jardin, Colombia.

June 6, 2013

We found this species when we were driving on a small road just north of Jardin, Colombia. Climbie Hall shouted when we were driving next to some trees. There were a couple of plants growing in small trees just a meter from the road. Altitude at around 1700-1900 meters. Was suprised as this place don´t get so low temperatures. No ID yet but working on it. So here is first a In Situ picture and then some other pictures.

    Don’t pick up Telipogons, they don’t grow well when you take out this plants from the natural environment. If all the people that love orchids pick up plants from the wild in Colombian, sooner or later a lot of orchids gonna be endangered.

        I Don’t was trying to be rude, I just see to many people collecting Telipogons and the die in the nursery or in the green house, really hard to grow. I collect for fun and already make several new reports for the area were I live.

        Excuse me if I offend you.

        p.d: excuse my english.
