Paphiopedilums and Phragmipediums – Growing Slipper Orchids in the Home
John Curtin will be speaking on Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium orchid culture.  Many of the slipper orchids can be grown on a windowsill or under lights as well as in a greenhouse. While slipper orchids are considered a good beginner plant, they can be tricky for a novice orchid grower. John will explain how he grows his plants.  Bring your questions!  Many of us were treated to a tour of John’s greenhouse this past summer.  John creates his own orchid display at our Palm Sunday Orchid show every year with his beautifully grown slipper orchids and Lycastes.  John will be selling about 50 divisions of his Paphs at the meeting.  They are very select and many are multiple growth plants.
