Most anthureum spathes that I've seen are either bright white or some shade of deep fuchsia or red. The inbetween-ness of this one appealed to me.

This is a collection of some of my favorite shots of tropical plants from various conservatories. The few temperate zone plants I've taken recent pictures of will go into this gallery for tropical plants. Look for the companion "Hot Shots #1" gallery to this one. Just for fun, I've decided to map tag the parts of the world where various plants are native, rather than locations of the individuals I photographed. In the case of orchids, many of which are created (non-wild) hybrids, I've tagged some for the general location in the wild of one of the genus's used in the hybridization.
This is now a 'sampler gallery', with many of the images collected from galleries in my 'Cyber Conservatory' (Nature Category - http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Nature/Cyber-conservatory-plants), so I have decided to sort it in reverse order of upload, rather than by caption. Images here will come and go, and will be selected more for visual impact than for identification purposes. Because I keep adding to the gallery, even though many of the images are 'old', I've decided to leave the gallery in the Newest Uploads category, at least for now.
As with most plants, amazing details are revealed when you look closely. I hope you'll take the time to view at least some of these images in their larger sizes, or download them and view them with "zoomable" viewing software. Above all, enjoy!
