    Current Favorite Slipper Orchid:
    Phrag pearcei
    ("Occupation" is more interesting and varied than the word limit permits. Should be more like: Sustainability consultant, Climate Innovator, social and ecological regeneration, Teacher/trainer. Plant explorer, permaculturist, botanist and horticulturist).

    Currently living near Barcelona on the awesome Costa Brava where I have a long-term orchid breeding project to develop plants that thrive in outdoor garden conditions possible in Mediterranean climates. Of course there are many terrestrial species native here and in the other Med climes globally, but I'm interested in testing, adapting and breeding epiphytes for our temperature, rainfall and achievable microclimates.

    And then there's the slippers.....

    I've been growing orchids, with an emphasis on slippers, and a passion for phrags for what now turns out to be most of my adult life :). I've grown both indoors and out in many climates over the years, from northern New England (cyps!) to coastal California, NW Europe, and now the Mediterranean.
