We have three Special Events at our nursery during the year.


All three of us love to give talks to orchid societies and welcome inquiries. Here are some of our topics. MINIATURE ORCHIDS is constantly changing to include a wide range of genera and is our most popular talk. WARM GROWING PLEUROTHALLIDS gives a lot of cultural information about the warmer members of this fascinating group. THE CULTURE OF MASDEVALLIAS will demystify growing this fabulous genus. THE STRANGE AND WONDERFUL WORLD OF DRACULAS illustrates some of the most bizzare and creature-like members of the orchid family and tells how to grow them. MINIATURE AND COMPACT ONCIDIINAE explores the lesser known but equally showy members of this subtribe. Please contact us for availability and further details.

Please check our Calendar.

We offer a 10% discount on domestic preorders that are delivered to one of our society talks or shows we attend.
