Event: Guest Speaker, Bill Bright (20 Feb)

Bill gave a very interesting talk on Pyrrosia lingua with examples of the rhizome, fertile frond and cultivars Monstrifera, Cristata, Kijabu, Nankin-shishi, Nokogiri-ba, Variegata, and Pyrrosia rupestris, Corfluens and Tunstall.

Please forgive me if I've got any of those incorrect. Bill said the names come from the Japanese language so do not fall from our tongues so easily!

Bill had gone to a tremendous amount of trouble to have both a board pasted with examples and ones we could actually touch and see the differences.

Thank you Bill for a terrific talk, we've never had this subject addressed to us before and we appreciated your effort.
