Permanent retirement now affords me the opportunity to devote my time and efforts to my orchid growing passion. 

Whilst I grow all types of orchids, I do have a soft spot for the Australian Natives, particularly the dendrobium hybrids, speciosums (rock lily orchid) and sarcochilus.

This web site was developed (2015) to allow you to watch my progress in trying to grow that elusive grand champion (a journey that may take 15 years) from flask or seedling.  Along the way I will share with you the reason for purchasing a specific orchid by providing background information that may contain parent information, hybridiser's comment and other matters of interest.

Regular updates on the seedling orchids as they develop together with a pictorial history will be provided. At maturity a frank assessment will be undertaken to assess whether the original purchase was soundly based, and did it achieve that 'Champion' or more importantly that 'Grand Champion' status.

The web site will also provide information on Orchid Shows on the Central Coast and surrounding areas under ‘Coming Events’, over time a comprehensive photo ‘Gallery’ on some Australian Orchid genera will be developed and under 'Resources' hopefully, I can produce some interesting orchid articles.

Please log in on a regular basis to watch the development of the web site and my pursuit for that elusive champion.

I hope that you enjoy following my journey, one, that I personally hope will be long.
