First and foremost, for use of their photos, I would like to thank Dot Barnett, Jon Barsalou, bench72, William Bellingham, Zach Bradford, Ray Brown, Ron Burch (http://www.gardensatposthill.com/), Peter Cataldo, Darin Clapp, Teresa Cohen, Tadd Daniel, Jean-Pierre Faust, Stan Fazi, Colin A. Flynn, J. Matthew Gore, Stephan Haberer, Rob Halgren, Ross Hella, Wendy Hoffman, Tom Keating, Rick Lockwood, Kyle Lucyk, Lien Luu, Heather McDonald, Marilyn Morton, Bruce Mullenix, Teresa Nguyen, Mangkara Nongrang, Paul P. Perakos, Donna Philips, Jean-Paul Pichardie, Somphon Potisophon, Ron Rayher, Clark T. Riley (http://cyps.us/), Gideon Scheepers, Russell Stoddart, Carsten Strömpl, Roberto Takase, Marcus Tan, Allan Tetzlaff, Richard T. Van Zandt II, Yijia Wang, and D.E. Wittkower. I met many of these and many other wonderful people at The Slipper Orchid Forum and 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.
