Cool growing Colombian Orchids - Photos of Orchids near Bogota' - , ,,, ,, , and ,Odontoglossum ramulosum,

Almost all of the preceding orchids were found near these two landscape shots, shows the cleared forests which has grown back with pine in the background and the original scrub forest with rock outcroppings in the foreground. The orchid not blooming is a Masdevallia, the bloom spike I do not think is from an orchid. Anyone? Shows the stunted bushes that grow amid rock outcroppings on a hill on the sides of the savannah of Bogata'.

If anyone has any idea as to the identity of any of the previous orchids please e-mail me at:
