Heather and I both arrived at KCCEM last night after a long journey. This morning was lovely to wake up and see the beautiful forest again.
Some of you may know that myself and Zoe are travelling to Rwanda for 5 months. We leave today and will be keeping you up to date with our adventures. This will be my second time in Rwanda working with partners KCCEM. I was involved in the expedition last July where we set up an orchid micropropagation lab to grow orchids from seed. On this expedition we will be working with all KCCEM students and developing their laboratory techniques aswell as exploring Nyungwe National park.
We thought we would start trying to spot orchids in the airports rainforest.
This is a Stenoglottis longifolia. it likes living on mossy banks in the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa.
