Growing Miniatures in the Home: with Cordelia Head


Cordelia Head is one of three previous owners of J&L Orchids and is proud to be

associated with the new owners, the Carreno family. She has been growing orchids for

more than forty years. Cordelia is on many international orchid committees involving

orchid conservation and orchid judging. She is an American Orchid Society accredited

judge and served on the Awards Committee for several years.

Cordelia has been fortunate to travel extensively throughout Central and South America

in search of orchids. She has discovered many new species and has three named for her.

Cordelia has lectured both nationally and internationally including the World Orchid

Conferences in Miami, France, Malaysia, Vancouver, Glasgow and many others.


On Wednesday we will hear about several different genera of miniature and micro-miniature orchids, and how to adapt to growing them in a house.
