PNG Orchids

While cut-flower farms in Europe and Asia await their next round of orchid blossoms, PNG horticulturalists may be meeting the demands of markets worldwide, because they can produce flowers all year round.

PNG has in access of 1,500 orchid species including the rare Sepik Blue, which is found in remote up-river areas, and the Kutubu Flame, a native of hte Lake Kutubu region in the Southern Highlands province.

The future of the PNG orchid may be promising, but for now the NCDC will concentrate on introducing the potential overseas orchid market to PNG horticulturalists, business people and landowners.
