Ecuadorean Orchid Overload!

On October 8, James Pearsall, our youngest WNC Orchid Society member, and a sophomore at the Asheville School, will share highlights of his 2 week internship with Ecuagenera Orchids, a world-class orchid cultivator, in Gualaceo, Ecuador.  From propagating orchids in sterile rooms in the lab, to cliff-climbing photography of wild orchids in the Amazon basin, it was both an education and adventure!
