Angraecums: Why I Started

I have used orchids as subjects for both my photography and for my digital paintings for well over twenty years.  About twelve years ago, I purchased an orchid in a plastic bag while spending time in a Home Depot.  That orchid was an Angraecum Longiscott grown by the Sun Bulb Company.  The main reason; the photo of the flower was not your typical orchid.  It appeared to be upside down with a tail.  Little did I know then that the world of Angraecums would come crashing down on me.  Throughout the last twelve years, I've researched, experimented with and grown countless Angraecums to create some of the most popular art work I've created to date.  This blog has been created so that I can pass on the information and cultures for these amazing plants.  Please feel free to post comments, questions and even photos.  Lets all learn and grow together!

  1. One of the goals is to show the actual plants I grow and work with. Which I'm hoping that other guests and members will share the knwledge of their plants also.

  3. You may have to check a couple of places. Do a google search for the websites and/or phone numbers for White Oak Orchids, Andy's Orchids and Cal Orchids, all of which are in California. Good luck and let me know how you fare!
