Ricky Wong will speak on Neofinetia falcata 
History, Appreciation, Hybridization and Culture



Neofinetia falcata 

The Japanese Samurai Orchid

Ricky's talk will focus on the different types and varieties found in Neofinetia falcata, some hybridizing points and culture considerations

 Ricky Wong started his interest in orchids while he was in elementary school. In 1995, he received a Phalaenopsis as his first orchid and his collection has grown ever since. After graduating from college, he started to volunteer extensively at OrchidMania, where his passion for orchids continued to grow.  

Ricky is currently part of the AOS judging program and is a Probationary Judge. He is a Director at Large for the Orchid Society of California (OSC), and has held various board positions with the OSC. 

Ricky grows exclusively outdoors without the use of a greenhouse and prefers to grow cool - cold growing species and primary hybrids that do well outdoors year-round in the Bay Area.
