Francisco Miranda - Miranda Orchids presents -

Cattleya walkeriana and Cattleya nobilior

For our Tampa Bay Orchid Society August's meeting, we have the pleasure to have Francisco Miranda speaking about: Cattleya walkeriana and Cattleya nobilior.

"Francisco Miranda was born in Rio de Janeiro on February 6, 1956. He got his degree in Biology and begun his taxonomic studies in the orchid family in 1981. During the next 4 years, he lived most of the time in Manaus where he studied Amazon orchids and began his Master’s degree. Shortly after returning to Rio de Janeiro, the Master’s was completed on “section Cattleyodes of the genus Laelia” . Since then, the main interest has been on the Brazilian laelias and cattleyas. He is the author of several papers ranging from species descriptions to subjects of growers’ interest in Brazilian, German and U.S. publications. He is also author of two books. Since 2000, he lives in Haines City, Florida, where he has Miranda Orchids, an orchid nursery specializing on Brazilian species and the Cattleya alliance."
