Ramon de los
Santos is best known in the USA as an AOS award photographer.
His photos have been widely enjoyed in the AOS calendars,
‘Orchids’ magazine and the California Sierra Nevada
webpage. But Ramon is also known
for his association with the Philippine
Orchid Society where he was secretary for several years.
This month we will
discuss orchids from the Philippines, mostly
because one day I was going through my collection and realized
how many were from the Philippines... Phals are from the
Philippines, Dendrochilums are from the Philippines,
Dendrobiums are from the
Philippines, Paphs are from the Philippines...
I mean really.
What an under appreciated place. Ramon will
discuss the microclimates of the Philippines and how it
effects our orchids.
