  • April Field Trip | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    April Field Trip This page is dedicated to showing the photos from the club's annual field trip. This year the group was fortunate to be able to go the "The Kampong". This is the historical residence of Dr. David Fairchild, who was known as the "Christopher Columbus of the Plant World". David and Marian (daughter of Alexander Graham Bell) bought the property in 1916 and permanently moved there after David's retirement from the United States Department of Agriculture (Washington, D.C.) in 1927. The group experienced a 1.5 hour history and garden walking tour, led by two club members who are Kampong docents. As a bonus, the members were treated to a wonderful box lunch, followed by members independently exploring the property. The total experience was a gift to club members.

  • Introduction to Orchids 101-3 | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    Introduction to Orchids...101 (Part 3) The three pages were designed to provide an "orchid pre-primer" to those who have limited knowledge of orchids and want introductory information. Perhaps, more experienced orchid enthusiasts might find interesting facts, as well. The source for this information was Wikipedia (Wiki Website) which is a collaboratively edited, multilingual, free-access, free content Internet encyclopedia that is supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and owned by Wikimedia Foundation. Please note that each section is notated by the use of a linking button to each specific Wikipedia webpage as a means of referencing the source. The EALOC publisher/editor extracted basic information and photographs from Wikipedia about each of nine orchid groups for this EALOC website. Next to each title is a button where the reader may want to go to the Wikipedia website for indepth reading regarding each specific orchid group. Phalaenopsis · Generic name probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carl Linnaeus to a group of large moths. · Known as the Moth Orchid and is one of the most popular orchids in the trade, through the development of many artificial hybrids. · Native to southern China, the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia (Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, et. al.), New Guinea, the Bismark Archipelago and Queensland. · Most are epiphytic (grows in trees) shade plants; a few are lithophytes (grows in or on rocks). In the wild, some species grow below the canopies of moist and humid lowland forests, protected against direct sunlight; others grow in seasonally dry or cool environments. They have adapted individually to these three habitats. · Has neither pseudobulbs nor rhizome, Has a monopodial (single trunk or stem) growth habit. Blooms appear from the stem between the leaves. and last for several weeks. At home, the flowers may last two to three months. · Often produce numerous aerial roots that often hang down in long drapes and have green chlorophyll underneath the grey root coverings. Go To Wikipedia Phragmipedium · was first found in Peru by Elizabeth Locke Besse in 1981. Phragmipedium besseae · Derived from the Greek , which means "division", and , which phragma pedium means "slipper" (referring to the pouch). · Lady's slipper orchids are found from SW Mexico, Central and tropical South America. · Most are either terrestrial, epiphytic (grows in trees) or lithophytic (grows in or on rocks). · Shows a unique shieldlike staminode (rudimentary, sterile or abortive stamen, which means that it does not produce pollen), long, moustache-like petals and a 3- locular ovary. The large pouch-like lip is curved inwards at the margins. · Short stemmed and is semi-terrestrial, semi-lithophytic (on rocks) to epiphytic (in trees). Go To Wikipedia Vanilla · Vanilla is a flavor derived from orchids of the genus , primarily from the Vanilla Mexican species, flat-leaved vanilla. · Word derived from the the Spanish word (vaina itself meaning sheath or vaina pod), translated as “little pod”. · Pollination is required to set the fruit from which the flavoring is derived. In 1837, Belgian botanist Charles François Antoine Morren pioneered a method of artificially pollinating the plant. · The various subspecies are grown on Madagascar, Réunion, and other tropical areas along the Indian Ocean, South Pacific; and the West Indies, and Central and South America. · Three major species of vanilla currently are grown globally, all of which derive from a species originally found in Mesoamerica, including parts of modern- day Mexico. · Second most expensive spice after saffron. · Grows as a vine, climbing up an existing tree (also called a tutor), pole, or other support. · A simple and efficient artificial hand-pollination method was developed by a 12- year-old slave named Edmond Albius on Réunion, a method still used today. · Flower lasts about one day. · Reproduced the plant by cutting and removing sections of the vine with six or more leaf nodes, a root opposite each leaf. Two lower leaves are removed, and buried in loose soil. Growth is rapid under good conditions. Go To Wikipedia Introduction, Part 1
