Next Meeting: Thursday, October 13th, 7:30pm - 10:00pm
Contra Costa Water District Building Board Room
 1331 Concord Ave. Concord, CA

Jason Fischer speaks on Neofinetia falcata 


Jason works and helps manage Orchids Limited in Plymouth, Minnesota USA with his
father Jerry Fischer. Orchids Limited opened in 1978 in Minnetonka in a small retail greenhouse off of Highway 12. In 1983, Orchids Limited moved to Plymouth where they have grown into a mid-sized operation of 4 greenhouses with 15,000 square feet of growing space, a shade house, and laboratory. 

Jason has had a life-long education in orchids mainly from the opportunity to be raised in a family orchid business. Jasonís educational interests were strongly influenced by Japan. He studied the Japanese language and culture for 6 years in high school and at the University of Minnesota. Jason lived in Japan from 2001 to 2003, and upon return decided to import Japanese orchid species and add a new niche to the business. Having worked for his father since the age of 5, Jason has learned the orchid world from the business and hobbyists perspective. He took interest in orchid hybridization and lab work around 14 years of age, and first started breeding with phalaenopsis, which later on lead to paphs, phrags and miscellaneous hybrids.

Speakerís Dinner will be at 5:30 at the Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Ln in Pleasant Hill. Everyone is welcome to attend and meet our speaker before the meeting. If you can join us, please call George McRae at (510) 233-7374 to be included in the reservation.
