Orchids, especially those of the genus Cymbidium, have long been of interest to me. On this simple Website, I present some of my thoughts on this subject, mostly those that have been published in various periodicals over the years. This site will hopefully develop into something useful in the course of time.

Some of my writing is published in The McAllen International Orchid Society Journal, and some of these articles can be seen on the MIOS Website. Visit to see this part of my body of work.

The menu on the left will link you to the various articles. You will find this Menu lurking on the left side of most of the pages on this Site if you are browsing with Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

(I would appreciate it if users could let me know which browsers to not display this item).

If no Menu appears on the left margin, you can consult a table of the links given below. You can return to this page to explore other pages by utilising your Back Button.
