Default Sad news for the orchid world...Jim Clarkson :(

It is with a heavy heart that I make this announcement about the untimely and unexpected passing of our friend and AOS Judge Jim Clarkson

Sadly, Jim passed away this morning after a brief illness.
A huge loss to his family, friends and the orchid world.

Most people in Florida orchid societies know Jim as he was a judge at many many shows over the years and also made a name for himself with the plants he grew personally.

It was truly an honor to know him and he will be missed by all. I will post memorial arrangement information as I get it.

Rest In Peace Jim
