Monthly meeting starts at 7:30 p.m.

Peter Lin, owner of Big Leaf Orchids, will speak about "Novelty and Fragrant Phalaenopsis."  In this program, he will use pictures of various novelty Phalaenopsis to show why this group deserves to be in an orchid collection. Peter will also share growing tips from his experience to keep these novelty Phalaenopsis happy.

Peter started growing orchids over 30 years ago, and turned his orchid growing into hybridizing. He started the company Big Leaf Orchids in 1996, a family-owned operation in Southlake, Texas that specializes in Phalaenopsis orchids. Peter takes annual trip to Taiwan to personally see the latest Phalaenopsis development, and to hand select new varieties to add to his hybridizing and for his customers.  Peter specializes in growing Phalaenopsis as their flowers are long lasting: 2 to 3 months indoor and longer in a temperature-controlled greenhouse. Peter has received numerous AOS awards. His other interest in orchids include Vanda, Cattleya, and Paphiopedilum.

He also runs the largest online forum dedicated to Phalaenopsis here:
