Speakers:

Steve Hampson – “Slipper Orchids of Southern and Southwestern China” – Steve has a master’s degree in horticulture from Penn State University and was and senior horticulturist at Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach in Southern California. He has been involved with growing and showing flowers for much of his life. His particular interests include orchids, daffodils, waterlilies and sweet peas. Steve has been growing orchids for over 50 years, and favors pleurothallids, angraecoids and novelty phalaenopsis, among others. He has travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and Southern Africa to study wildflowers, particularly orchids, in their natural habitats.

Dr. David Roberts – “Analysis of the Global Market for Paphiopedilum and Implications for Their Conservation” – David graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2001, where he studied the reproductive biology and conservation of the orchids of Mauritius. After receiving his Ph.D., he spent over 8 years working in the orchid herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, with Philip Cribb, where he specialized in orchids of the western Indian Ocean and West Africa, including field work in Madagascar and Cameroon, as well as working on the genus Vanda with Dr. Martin Motes. In 2010 he moved to the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology at the University of Kent, where he works on cyber-enabled wildlife trafficking, particularly ivory, as well as socioeconomic aspects of the horticultural trade, including orchids.

Sam Tsui – “State of the Art of Paphiopedilum Culture” – Sam moved to the United States from Hong Kong at the age of 22. He began growing orchids in the early 1980s, and by 1985, after trying many types of orchids, he focused on being a serious Paphiopedilum grower. He began hybridizing in 1990 and continues that work until today. In 1995 he started his commercial business, the Orchid Inn, which has grown to occupy a 6,000-square-foot commercial greenhouse. He currently makes over 300 crosses annually, which yield about 4,000–5,000 flasks, or 100,000 seedlings. His breeding efforts focus primarily on Brachypetalum, Parvisepalum and multifloral hybrids. Since retiring in 2008 as a software developer for an insurance and financial services firm, Sam has focused full time on his orchid business. Sam is an internationally recognized expert on paphiopedilums and is invited to speak, both in the United States and abroad, about 25 times a year. He has also judged the Japan Grand Prix, the world’s largest orchid show, for nearly 25 years. He has garnered many awards for his orchids, including 17 First Class Certificates and several cultural awards (including a 93- point Certificate of Cultural Excellence!), and seven of his crosses have garnered Awards of Quality for him.

I was at work so all I managed to catch was parts of Sam's talk, but they did say the presentations were recorded and will be available to watch later. I'm looking forward to sitting down and seeing it all uninterrupted.

Ya. Royal carribean invested in some geosynchronous satellites to support their ship Wi-Fi modernization. Reasonable good. Odyssey of the seas. One of their quantum class ships. (Embarrassed to say). I’ve done zoom calls for business from the boat. It’s that reliable.

Sorry I missed this. We had a storm and knocked out the Internet. Any chance it was taped and can be purchased?

Oh I thought this was cancelled cause I emailed a week before and never got a response. Would still be interested in the recording especially from Sam!

Sam's presentation alone was worth the price of admission, and now I'm plotting a drip irrigation system for my own greenhouse as a spring project.
