When to Hold’em – When to Fold’em. Ted Kellogg will share some of his experiences from 50 years of orchid growing. Living in Miami, Florida, he purchased his first orchids, three cattleyas, in 1965. Those plants were the beginning of an orchid adventure that has lasted to today. The collection has moved to Tallahassee, FL., Kingston, RI., Wakefield, RI., and recently, three locations in Englewood, Fl. During these moves Ted’s collection reached a maximum number over 2000 plants and today contains about 650 plants.
During many of the VAOS meetings members have been given advice on how to select and grow orchids. Speaker after speaker has told us how to stop pests, bugs, viruses, bacteria, fungi etc. and what the ideal conditions are to grow our plants. But, what ones should we hold and what ones should we fold? Ted will provide ideas on how to keep your own collection in the condition, size and form that excites you.
