Since Bev Tall has just signed me up for February 2023, hopefully I will make Estacion Seca's list next year.

I currently have 11 presentations available. The first is intended for non-orchid audiences (garden clubs, master gardeners, libraries, etc.), and the next 10 are for orchid societies:
  1. You Bought an Orchid - How to make it bloom again.
  2. Yes, you can grow Vandaceous Orchids.
  3. Slippers - Mostly Paphs
  4. Cattleya
  5. Growing Seedlings from Flask.
  6. Cool Orchids, which can be grown outdoors for 6+ months.
  7. Cymbidiums I (overview).
  8. Cymbidiums II (breeding trends, award review).
  9. Taxonomy - Species name changes, how to research grex names.
  10. 3 generations of Orchidholiics (family biography)
  11. 2008 World Orchid Congress in Miami.

In the north east I usually drive (up to 6-7 hrs); for greater distances I either fly, or do the presentation via Zoom. For more details on each presentation, and fees, please visit Fair Orchids

I am neither a 'lumper' nor a 'splitter', but I refuse to re-write millions of labels.

Kim, you are scheduled to be our guest speaker (cymbidiums) at the Ann Arbor Orchid Society on November 13 of this year. I'm looking forward to it!

Addendum: I wanted to also mention that visitors are always welcome at our meetings. You do not have to be a member to attend. The society's website is undergoing some updating and improvements, but the easiest way to find out when and where our meetings are is currently on the Matthaei Botanical Gardens events calendar, which is where all our meetings are held, though we are on a summer hiatus. Meetings will resume in September. Here's a link:

I had the pleasure of driving up to Ann Arbor to speak to that society several years ago. Nice venue and great group of folks.
