One very reliable treat in the our Cool Americas section is restrepia flowers as we always have at least one species in flower. Restrepia muscifera is a variable species found from Central America through to Ecuador and this red spotted clone in particular is a strong growing and free flowering plant that regularly sends out show like the one we are enjoying this week.
In the greenhouse we are busy getting ready for the Cheltenham Orchid Show this Saturday 2nd March at the Churchdown Community Centre, Parton Road, Churchdown, Gloucester, GL3 2JH.
