Bruce Rogers: The Care and Feeding of Sobralias 

Bruce Rogers has been growing, hybridizing and decorating with orchids for over 30 years.  He began his professional career in the late 1970s when the city of Atlanta Parks Department hired him to work with its orchids in the greenhouses in Piedmont Park. Returning to San Francisco after this endeavor, he was hired by the Rod McLellen Company as the head grower for the boarding department and to hybridize Vandas. 

In the early 1980s he left to start Bruce Rogers Orchids, an orchid consulting and management company based in San Francisco. In 2002 Bruce joined Terry Root of the Orchid Zone and co-founded OZGARDENS, a business devoted exclusively to hybridizing and growing Sobralias.

Bruce is a frequent guest lecturer. He is on the Advisory Council at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers and is the Ambassador for the San Francisco Orchid Society.
