Our speaker will be:
Speaker Scott Leard
Topic Topic will be “Growing Orchids on Ceramic.”
A short excerpt from Scott’s bio:
“Scott Leard started collecting plants at the age of 7. There was a plant store in Scott’s neighborhood, and he would save up allowance money and buy plants.
There are now approximately 400 mostly species plants in his ever-changing collection. Scott has been making Orchid Pots for many years, as the ones available are mostly plastic or not shaped the way Orchids grow and he doesn’t like that. A colleague approached him with an idea of growing Orchids on hollow ceramic tubes. After some trial and some error, certain genera and species were found most suited to this culture. Scott also found that having mounted plants gave him room for yet more plants. There is always room for more!”
(and folks, yes, there is always room for more! :D) <3
Hope to see everyone there!
