Next Meeting is on Thursday, February 8th, 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm

Contra Costa Water District Building Board Room
 1331 Concord Ave. Concord, CA

Peter T. Lin will talk about the 3 As of the Orchid World: Angraecum, Aerangis and Aeranthes 

 



Peter started growing orchids 35 years ago, but then stopped due to school and starting a career. It wasn't until about 14 years ago that the orchid "bug" came back and he is now heavily involved once again! 

He is an accredited judge with the American Orchid Society and a hybridizer of mini-catts. He enjoys meeting with other orchid enthusiasts, and can often be found at various orchid shows and societies around the country.

Due to limited growing space, Peter likes to specialize in miniature orchids, both species and hybrids, and he has received numerous AOS awards. His interests in orchids include Dendrobiums, Angraecoids, and Neofinetias. He is also known as "Mr. Sophronitis" as he has a passion for growing and collecting them. He maintains a collection of a thousand or more orchids at his home in Southern California in three small greenhouses, outdoors, as well as at an offsite greenhouse.

 

The plant table will be provided by Peter Lin

Dinner with the Speaker at 5:30 pm is at Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Ln, Pleasant Hill , CA

Everyone is invited to attend and meet our speaker.
