25,000 Orchids

Tuesday, 10 March, 2020 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM | Cost:FREE

There are more than 25,000 species of orchids that form one of the most diverse, and arguably the largest, flowering plant family on Earth. They grow in almost every habitat imaginable and show an amazing amount diversity in their body plan as well as their reproductive strategies. This talk will focus on the features that tie orchids together as a family and introduce the vast range of variation in orchid diversity. Both topics will be heavily illustrated with photos of species studied by Dr. Carlsward. There will also be a more practical portion that will introduce some basics of orchid care indoors and a demonstration of how to repot your orchids. Directions provided to registered participants.

Please register by 3/6/2020.
