"Orchids Alfresco! The Best Orchids to
by Peter Lin
We are delighted to host Peter Lin again who will be presenting his talk on "Orchids
Alfresco! The Best Orchids to Grow Outdoors" in our Southern California climate.
This fast-paced PowerPoint presentation will show you some of the easiest orchids to
grow in your back yard. Peter will also discuss some of the challenges to growing outside
and provide some great tips on how to overcome them. His talk will appeal both to
the novice and more advanced orchid grower.
Peter started growing orchids over 40 years ago, but due to school and starting his career
his orchid passion was temporarily interrupted. He is an accredited Judge with the
American Orchid Society and he is also a hybridizer of mini-carts and mini Vandas. He
enjoys meeting with other orchid enthusiasts, and can often be found at various orchid
shows and societies around the country. He has thousands of photos of his orchids
that he maintains on Flickr. You can view them by typing this link into the Internet:
Due to limited growing space, Peter specializes in miniature orchids, both species
and hybrids that have received numerous AOS awards. He has published articles
in both Orchid Digest as well as in Orchids magazine. His other interests in
growing orchids include Dendrobiums, Angraecoids, and Neofinetias. Peter maintains a
collection of several thousand orchids in Southern California in three greenhouses.
Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome to attend! Attendance is free.
Come join us this fall at our new location in the Pacific Palisades.
We are an award winning, volunteer run, 501(c) (3) non-profit organization formed in the spring of 1963 to develop interest in orchids; to aid and assist members with orchid growing and culture; and to provide educational information, which shall benefit its members and the community.
At each meeting members benefit from expert speakers who present illustrated talks on various orchid genera and their culture. Members display orchids for ribbon judging each month and share tips on how their plants are grown. The Society also holds a silent plant auction as well as a raffle table for orchids. Upcoming events are announced and fellow orchid enthusiasts consult with each other on the culture of various orchid species.
