    Just updated the plantation page on the site.
    We also have a second plantation where we grow Anthuriums (cut flower and foliage) and also 5 hectares of Heliconia.
    I have to get some piccies of those yet and I'm too lazy to head out there.

    Here's a pic of about 1/4 of the Dendrobium shadehouse with my daughter visible down the path.



    Cheers, Troy.

    That's really cool, Troy. Do you do much with strap leaf Vanda and Ascocenda?

    Joe - no rajah as we are almost at sea level but I have got eustachya, albo-marginata, truncata, gracilis, rafflesia and a couple of others that I can't remember the names of that I got from Phill Mann all growing in the orchid garden - in the ground.
    I've also got a couple of Amorphophallus titanum.

    I'm close enough to go see most of the highlanders in their habitats any time I want, like next month!!

    Trent - funnily enough those two are favs of mine.
    the strap leaf is just now producing fruit for the very first time, PM me your mail addy and I'll post you a couple of you like.
    We have several hundred Asco's, which I haven't photographed much, but will start to do shortly. Quite a few are in flower right now.

    Cheers, Troy.
