Here is a link to a youtube documentary on Aripo Savannas produced for the Aripo Savannas Stakeholders Management Committee by the EMA.
I noted Mr McMillan's name was misspelled but we had no input into the editing. I am hoping it can be corrected. Three more programs are planned. This is an example of the input of TTOS members into conservation projects.

Cultural Tips.

This time of the year we are still having rains, though at a moderate level, good humidity, shorter days and much cooler temperatures. It's a time when some of our plants are inclined towards more intermediate climatic conditions would choose to initiate blooming and we need to be observant in order to get the best blooms from these plants.
Watch out for chewing insects and treat accordingly, control fungal diseases. Support plants and stake flower spikes to obtain best results. Feeding with a little blossom booster will be of benefit at this time too.
Some of the orchids referred to here are:Calanthes, Phaius, Cymbidiums,Dendrobiums mainly of the Nobile type, Erias, Cattleyas, Paphiopedilums,Oncidiums and Phalaenopsis.
Continue routine maintenance for the upcoming spring flowering period, so that you can experience a burst of flowers for the March to June period.
