Flowers of the Gods

Recently Miami hosted the World Orchid Conference 19. The orchid show was open to all. This movie clip shows the Disa orchids from South Africa. This is the largest selection of Disa ever to be shown in the USA. They will not grow in Florida and the orchid growers in the cooler parts of the country have great difficulty with it's cultivation. The flowers are on long stems and are strong enough to be used as a cut flower.
