Cattleya maxima at Ecuagenera, Guayaquil

It's C. maxima's time to shine, and Ecuagenera has an amazing collection. They have several color forms, and they have grown up populations of seedlings of many of them. The albas were just about done, but the dark ones, the ones with deeply rayed lips, and the coeruleas were all in great form.


  1. I'm a bit slow, Duane. I just twigged to the fact that you have a bog. Beautiful photos from Ecuagenera on your Flickr site. I've been following them for a few days, now. Excellent work on the blog.

  2. Thanks for the note, Ron! I had planned to blog the heck out of this trip, but it looks like it's going to be retroactive. Just keeping up with the flood of photos is keeping me hopping while I'm here. This is going to give me a year (or more) worth of stuff to talk about. I'm looking forward to being able to do it more thoughtfully.
    I linked to you without your permission. I hope that's not a problem - let me know if it is. I just assumed that our readership would be similar, and I love what you do.
