My Orchids

I have had this hobby of growing orchids since 1990 starting in Raleigh, North Carolina, and then in New Orleans, Louisiana. We have had a good collection of about 50 plants in both homes in NC and LA. When we moved to Heidelberg, Germany, we brought with us about 30 plants after a rather long application and inspection with the US Wildlife office and the US Department of Agriculture.

All of our orchid plants have been doing very well in Heidelberg. We always have some plants in bloom throughout the year. We have Dendrobium hybrids bloom in the summer, and Phalenopsis in bloom during the Winter. We are also able to get some original Thai orchids to bloom as well in Heidelberg - they never did bloom in the US. Here are some examples of our orchids:
Dendrobium Dendrobium Dendrobium Dendrobium Dendrobium
Phalenopsis Phalenopsis Phalaenopsis Phalaenopsis Phalaenopsis
Rhyngigantea Rhyngigantea Rhyngigantea Rhyngigantea Phalaenopsis

Some Orchid Links

At Christmas of 2002, we purchased this antique Buddha head sculpture from an auction house down the street from our home. This is from the Sukothai era (14th century). A German engineer working for the King of Siam in the early 1900's, was collecting Thai antiques. Coming back to Germany in the 1920's, he brought his antique collection to Heidelberg. Some more Thai art and culture is here.

Two Home Towns: Udon and Bangkok

Born in Bangkok I grew up in Udon Thani where my father had his business. For college I went back to Bangkok.

Wat phrakao at night decorated with lights for the celebration of the King's birthday. This decoration takes place every year. This picture was taken 20 years ago by my brother Yai.
