Topic: The World Orchid Conference: Miami by Kim Feddersen of Fair Orchids
Kim Feddersen of Fair Orchids will be headlining our program this month and will be presenting on “The World Orchid Conference: Miami” Kim will be speaking in person to our society and he will be bringing plants for sale. Kim Feddersen’s Bio: “I am a third generation orchidholic, and a member of North Jersey, Deep Cut & Manhattan OSs, as well as the AOS My grandfather spent 8 years in Malaysia, where he indulged his strong botanical interests. My dad had a retail orchid nursery (Orkidé Kultur) in Denmark, where I worked after school and weekends, throughout high school and college, and continued to work there on weekends till I left for the US in 1977. I have grown Orchids as a hobby grower for about 25 years, starting in windows, moving to lights in the basement, and finally into a greenhouse, where my collection eventually numbered some 3000+ plants, mostly Paphiopedilum and Vandaceous, but also ranging into Cattleyas, Aussie Dendrobiums, Cymbidiums & Lycastes. I do a little breeding in Paphs (complex & tea cup types) and miniature Vandaceous, with emphasis on Neofinetia falcata & Ascocentrum hybrids.” All are welcome and please bring any friends who might be interested in hearing Kim's presentation or purchasing any of Kim’s wonderful orchids.
