Miscellaneous Gems

Any self-respecting orchid (addict) hobbyist knows that there a lot of plants that don't fit into general classifications. Here, we call them the 'ODDS & SODS'. This is a list of some of them. With the world of orchids being so diverse and the lack of control that Terry shows in wanting to try something new or different there will always be something to add to these. Not all these genera are obscure or rare. Some have interesting plant habits, some interesting flowers and some merely names that bear investigation. They are all special and  you should try them too.
