School Gongora performs for the BBC

We have just been sent these photographs by BBC time-lapse specialist Tim Shepherd of our Gongora tracyana in the camera lenses for the BBC’s forthcoming Green Planet series. We cant wait to see the finished film.

Gongora truncata is a really lovely plant with masses of small flowers on long spikes. The flowers are fragrant and seem relatively long lasting (just over a week). The species is native to wet lowland forests in Panama and South America.

 

Time will be back at school in a week or so to work with students to select some more species to feature in the series.
