    I could not afford an orchid when I was 14...., Welcome.

    Do you know the natural habitat of Neocogniauxia monophylla? If I visit Jamaica again, I will love to visit the habitats of some Pleurothallids like Lepanthes.....

    Definitely! and I will have to have a local to show me around the Blue Mountain by Kingston. Thanks.

    btw, have you seen Neocogniauxia growing anywhere else naturally other than the blue mountain?

    I can also show you some breeders and collectors in kingston with very rare and unique orchids that are native and found worldwide and no I do not know of other locations that neocogniauxia live.
