We thank Mr. Philip Hamilton of Bredren Orchids for the special orchids he brought to the October meeting. He is an AOS judge and has his own retail orchid business. His stock currently consists mainly of novelty Phalaenopsis hybrids from his own stock as well as Caribbean species and Broughtonia species and hybrids. He gave an interesting talk on culture and growing of orchids.
