Default Speaker Recommendations

As a member of the Desert Valley Orchid Society I have learned a tremendous amount from our speaker chair and AOS Judge Bev Tall. I have heard numerous excellent talks from which I have learned a lot. I highly recommend these speakers. You may find my edited lecture notes for many of these here on Orchid Board. I still have more notes to write up.

Anybody with access to the DVOS newsletters will recognize I left out some talks. That might mean I was not there that evening.

I have a soft spot for travelogues given by people who pay close attention to growing conditions in habitat - and tell us about them.

I would gladly listen again to any of the talks I already heard from these people:
  • Ray Barkalow, First Rays - Understanding Orchid Nutrition
  • Scott Barrie, Barrita Orchids, Australia - Cymbidium, Oncidium and Sarcochilus Hybrids
  • Carole Beule - Neofinetia falcata
  • Amy Chung Jacobsen - Laelia purpurata
  • Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids - many topics
  • Norman Fang, Norman's Orchids - Harlequin Phals; Species Phalaenopsis used in breeding
  • Daniel L. Geiger - Building and Using a Terrarium
  • Mary Gerritsen - Orchids of Borneo, many topics
  • Eric Goo, Phoenix Orchids - Development of Multifloral Phalaenopsis hybrids
  • Ronald S. Kaufmann - Orchids of Colombia
  • Alan Koch, Gold Country Orchids - Cattleyas 7/24/365; Look at ancestors to figure out how to grow hybrids; Growing Dendrobiums; many topics
  • Peter T. Lin, Diamond Orchids - many topics
  • Karen Muir - Maxillarias
  • Francisco Miranda, Miranda Orchids - Habitats of Brazilian orchids
  • Phyllis Prestia, Orchids of Madagascar
  • Ivan Portilla, Ecuagenera - Many topics
  • Pepe Portilla, Ecuagenera - Many topics
  • Carri Raven-Rieman, The orchidPhile - Growing Orchids Successfully In Moss
  • Guillermo Salazar, Orchids of El Salvador
  • Dave Sorokowski, Paph Paradise - many Paph topics
  • Brandon Tam - Paphiopedilums the Huntington Way
  • Darryl Venable, Tezula Plants - Tolumnia
  • Linda Wilhelm, Woodland Orchids - Oncidium
  • Win Winmaw - Orchids of the Shan Plateau, Burma
  • Graham Wood, Lehua Orchids - Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, Angraecum, Lycaste
  • Dotty Woodson - Pests and Pest Control
May the bridges I've burned light my way.
