Jan. Meeting - Mike Badia "Growing Paphs and Phrags in the home"

  • 10 Jan 2023
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • SOI 117 Swanton Street Winchester


Mike Badia will discuss growing Slipper Orchids in the home.  Mike's experience is extensive with these charming species and hybrids.  He tells us, "I have a lifelong obsession with both houseplants and gardening but I was first exposed to orchids in 1982 and was immediately hooked.  I now grow and kill orchids on windowsills, tiered LED light carts and more recently a basement grow room with LED lights.  Most of my orchids summer outside hanging under a 60% shade cloth. I grow a variety of orchids in my large collection but tend to favor Paphs, Phrags and Catts. I am currently an active member of the of the Massachusetts Orchid Society including serving on the Board.  My insigne ‘Harefield Hall’ took the Jim Campbell Memorial Trophy for Best Cypripedium Alliance at the 2022 New Hampshire Orchid Society Show."
