October 2017 Meeting



Jim lives in Sherman with his wife, Barbara. He has been growing orchids for 50 years (+/-) in California , Louisiana, Florida, Mississippi, Virginia, and of course, Texas.

He is a 45-year member of the American Orchid Society, and an accredited judge. He grows in greenhouses, and outside in the summer.

His collection contains a wide variety of genera, but heavy on the cattleya and dendrobium side. He grows many cymbidiums, some of which actually bloom.

He is three-times retired, and now works at Lowe’s garden center, to keep him off the streets and out of
honky-tonks. It also helps fund his orchid addiction.
