Greetings from Dallas

Post by elpaninaro » Wed Jun 19, 2019 11:31 pm

Good evening all,

My name is Tom Reddick and I started growing orchids 36 years ago at age 9. My early orchid days were in Houston with the Houston Orchid Society, and I focused mainly on Phals, Catts and species from Mexico. For most of my adult life, I lived in Austin and at that time was focused mainly on Vandas and Paphs.

At present I live in Dallas, and am very deep into Phalaenopsis again with plans to engage in some breeding including going back and remaking (from the species level) a few favored famous crosses with the vastly improved (plus 4N) populations of species breeding stock available today. Hopefully Vandas again too when space permits.

Thank you Peter for the forum. Look forward to participating.
