In greenhouses

For the realization of this site, my most grateful thanks go to Caesar Solimbergo, for his friendship
and the extraordinary level of his photographs, my wife Ricky, for his help in the crucial moments and
the time that subtract for orchids, notes taken over the years, the passion and the work done in greenhous
The data on the classification and the origin of plants, coming from the literature or from the websites cited in the References.
The data on inflorescences and all photographs, come from our greenhouses
Some orchids, old collections from discontinued operations, have been found with incorrect names or not.
I'll be grateful to anyone who can help me find the correct nomenclature
