Fair Orchids


Long before the data mining issues, I decided  that the Facebook concept violates my sense of privacy.  Thus, I have shut down the profile I set up.

Jan 2018 update:   Over the holidays our landlord allowed the propane to run out, so 99.9% of my intermediate & warm growing orchids froze when the temperature dropped to 18F in the greenhouse. 
My Australian Dendrobiums, Cymbidiums & Laelia anceps were fortunately in a different location, so that part of the collection is OK.
I have relocated all my orchid activities to Flemington Orchids in Hillsborough, but am not open to the public at that location yet.  As of September 2019 I have a reasonable inventory of Cattleya & various Vandaceous orchids. 

I am well stocked on clear plastic pots, net pots and Vanda baskets (6" & 8" octagonal), as well as Spaghnum and other potting mix.   Free delivery to DCOS & NJOS meetings, and when speaking at other societies.

I was genetically imprinted on all things botanical in my fathers orchid/tropicals nursery.  I elected not to go into the family business full time, but have always maintained my interest and a large collection of 'this and that'.

I have grown orchids since 1968, specializing in 'slippers' (primarily Paphiopedilum), with Paph fairrieanum my favorite species, smaller Vandaceous plants (see Neofinetia falcata 'Maplewood' at right) and a sprinkling of Cattleyas (see RLC Maui's Golden Charm below), Aussie Dendrobiums & Cymbidiums.  

I do a little breeding in the first two genera, so I often have a variety of extra plants, seedlings and occasionally flasks for sale.  For more information, please go to the Orchids & other plants menu.

I have several orchid presentations available, suitable for both orchid societies and garden clubs.  For current speaking schedule, please go to the Speaker page.


My beautiful, talented, and far better, Better Half.

Carolyn is stuck in Maplewood with our 3 felines, watching some weird plants growing in the garden, while I am off playing with orchids.  For those active on Maplewood On Line, please meet Tabby.
