February Monthly Meeting: Holger Perner – February 18, 2014 – 7pm
Holger Perner and his wife Wenqing founded Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology Ltd. in 1999. Initially a conservation effort in the Hengduan Mountain region in China, it developed into an ex situ orchid propagation effort and full-fledged orchid business. Thanks to Hengduan Mountains Biotech, many previously unavailable orchid species from China are now being legally propagated and distributed in the US. This is a rare opportunity to hear him speak and to purchase these otherwise impossible to find orchids.
All orchid sales will be on a pre-order basis (he will not be bringing extra orchids for sale). For information about pre-ordering please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
