Welcome to SlipperOrchids.info

First and foremost, for use of their photos, I would like to thank Asendorfer-Orchideenzucht.com, Dot Barnett, Jon Barsalou, Lisa Beausejour, bench72, William Bellingham, Elizabeth Berenstein, Todd Boland, David Boucher, Zach Bradford, Ray Brown, Ron Burch (http://www.gardensatposthill.com/), Peter Cataldo, Darin Clapp, Teresa Cohen, Jay Ciezki, Darren Clapp, Helena Cohen, Teresa Cohen, Tadd Daniel, Ibn Dionisio, Adam Dreisewerd, Dave Eickhoff, Jean-Pierre Faust, Stan Fazi, Kim Feddersen, Colin A. Flynn, J. Matthew Gore, Stephan Haberer, Hakone, Rob Halgren, David Harrap, Ross Hella, Richard Hepler, Daniel Herrera, Wendy Hoffman, Christoph Hutter, Alexander Jeans, Tom Keating, Roy Lee, Rick Lockwood, Kyle Lucyk, Lien Luu, Jean Lux, Heather McDonald, Wolfgang Meier, Marilyn Morton, Bruce Mullenix, Hien Nguyen, Teresa Nguyen, Mangkara Nongrang, Gilda Pafford, Paul P. Perakos, Donna Philips, Jean-Paul Pichardie, Somphon Potisophon, Ron Rayher, Shanna Read, C. Rehm, Clark T. Riley (http://cyps.us/), Kim Robilliard, Gideon Scheepers, Istvan Semsey, Ignas Stanevicius, Russell Stoddart, Carsten Strömpl, Roberto Takase, Naoki Takebayashi, Marcus Tan, Eliseo Teson, Allan Tetzlaff, Trithor, C. Ufford, Richard T. Van Zandt II, Yijia Wang, and D.E. Wittkower.   I met many of these and many other wonderful people at Slippertalk.com.

My goal in creating this website is to get as much useful information on the slipper orchids as I can and post it all in one place. For the most part, I have avoided general paph culture information, as that is available in greater detail than I could ever hope to provide at other sites around the web.  If there are any slipper orchid topics that you find are lacking or disorganized, please let me know.  I am constantly looking for new ideas for pages that could provide useful information for all those interested.

As a result of the help of those mentioned above, along with my own rather meager collection, I have created a few photo galleries.  I am always in search of new pictures (even of those blooms which I have multiples of), so if anyone would allow me to use their photos, please send me an e-mail.

The information presented on these pages comes from a number of different sources.  The AOS Bulletin/Orchids and the Orchid Digest hold a large number of great articles on slippers.  I have also amassed a number of books, both classic and contemporary.  I have a moderately complete bibliography here.
