    Default Broughtonia sarguinea (Splash Petal Form)

    I have always liked the way these orchids grow and bloom. If Broughtonias are growing well, either mounted or in a basket, they develop the appearance of a ball of roots from which leaves emerge. I have been looking at photographs of the work being done by Broghtonia breeders and beautiful results are being achieved. The breeding programs in Jamaica are very impressive.
    Please enjoy!

    roots on this Looks stunning. Yes. I agree Broughtonia breeding is at its best from Jamaica. I visited his nursery and was very humble and great person.
