Genus Dendrobium

Orchid Society of Minnesota

Location: Bachman’s Heritage Room, 6010 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419

Our speaker is Ron Parsons, who has been growing orchids for more than 40 years and has been interested in and has grown species for most of that time. Ron loves to photograph orchids and other flowers whenever he can. He the co-author of “Compendium of Miniature Orchid Species”. The Australasian genus Dendrobium is one of the largest genera in the most species rich flowering plant family of the world. More than 1800 species have been described (with likely many more to be discovered), and they are found anywhere from the lowland tropics to cool to cold high elevations. Ron’s talk is a brief synopsis of this amazing genus that nearly every orchid enthusiast grows.
