About me.

Hello all visitors
I have started a major update of this site with lots of pictures. I have begun with a genus Aerangis and so on with the genus Angraecum and come to Angraecopsis.I continue with genera in Angraecoid and later all genus with life form geophytes (Habenaria, Disa and so on) and last all genus with a lifeform of Pseudobulb epiphyte (the genus Bulbophyllum are with a be reviewed). if you find some pages where images are missing and you have some you'd like to share with us, you are welcome to send them to me so I can have set them in.
You can write to me using the contact form on the site.

Attention: Many new images every single day
I started working on this website on the 1st of April 2008 and will continue working on it and update it, every time new information comes to my knowledge. At the moment it is far from finished but the work continues.

Me? I have work as a trained gardener in many years with many different plants, among them orchid. Today I work mostly with systematic botanic. I'm just a hobbyist who loves orchids. I have my orchid in greenhouse, where my collection of cold and intermediate orchids grows.

Orchids have been my passion through the last 35 years. And now is time to share my knowledge with all of you. The Africanorchids.dk will cover the entire African region, including Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion and the Seychelles.

I have a question for you, the visitor of African treasures, one of the biggest problems I have, is to find photos of all African species, varieties. I mean not just photos of the flower, but photos of the whole plant, characteristic details, side views of flowers, in their natural habitat, line drawing etc. So if you have photos that are legally yours, and you are willing to let me use them on this website, please let me know. Of course your name or the name of your company will be right next to the photos. Other information, comments or suggestions are welcome as well.

This website has so far as possible respect the copyright of images used in this website. It has not always been possible to locate the image author. If there are any legitimate claims, they will be honored.

Thank you for visiting this website.
