TOPIC:  Growing Orchids in San Antonio

Mr. Valdez encourages members with orchid problems to bring them.

SPEAKER:  Luis Valdez

Mr. Valdez was on the board of directors for the Alamo Orchid Society for three years and is presently serving as President.  He was also vice president for 2 years.  A graduate of St. Mary’s University, he has been the volunteer Greenhouse Director at the San Antonio Botanical Garden for 2 years.

He grew up with a plant loving mother, so he learned from her everything about citrus trees, banana trees, cacti, roses, and herbs.  From 1993 to 1997 he was in the Navy stationed in Japan.  At this time he did not grow plants but admired plants from Japan and other countries, especially Bonsai trees, which he eventually grew for three years.  In 2013, he went to his first Orchid Show and has been growing Orchids with a passion ever since.
