MY CAUDICIFORMS


I do not have all the plants, described on this site. Because of my limited room, I have to restrict. I have chosen to collect one caudiciform member of each family. The collection once again grow too large, and now it forms a special part of Copenhagen Botanical Garden. My next collection was also based on taxonomy, but now on classes. Today, I only have one plant!
Go to
Taxonomy to see the connections between the families, and here to see photos of the collection through the years.
