My name is Michael Orr and I have been growing orchids for over 15 years now, both as a hobby and also professionally. I have been growing many different species of plants commercially at my own nursery for about 12 years now, but
when it comes to my favorite, it has to be the orchid.
I love the variety you find with orchids, the many different colors, the leaf textures and the beautiful flowers of many different shapes and sizes. You will never tire of the huge range of orchids on offer. Often you will discover a new colour or flower shape that takes your breath away.
I started this site to try to share some of the experience I have gained from growing these wonderful plants and to help explode the myths that they are only for the most dedicated gardeners. The truth is that anyone can grow fantastic, healthy orchids and be the envy of their neighbours. JUST TRY!
