and a joint Poster Presentation by Tonny Kasinja in Rwanda and Simon on ‘Global School Orchid Projects – Working with Aerangis verdickii in Rwanda’
We are also very proud of our partners in Sarawak who are also taking part, with MRSM School students Alwin, Humaria, Nur and Natalia presenting ‘A Study on in vitro Micropropagation of Dendrobium anosmum (An Endangered Orchid Species)’
And scientist, Tengku Auvaroza presenting ‘A Study on the Introduction of Dendrobium anosmum (An Endangered Species Orchid), Dendrobium crumenatum and Arundina graminifolia Into An Elaeis Guineensis (Oil Palm) Estate in Kuching, Sarawak’
