    Ivan Komoda. A great Miltoniopsis source.

    I don't know. I would guess financial situation as that's why nursery after nursery closes.
    I really hate to see these specialty breeders disappear.

    I'm not sure if it's ok to disclose names, so I won't, but both are well known breeders/growers.
    Rather depressing.

    It might not be just be financial, age may be a factor.

    I believe that this might be the case with Mr. Komoda
