Novelty Paphiopedilums with Dave Sorokowsky

October 4, 2022 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

Open to the public, free to attend

Monthly Heart of Texas Orchid Society Meeting

Please join us as Dave Sorokowsky of Paph Paradise Orchids discusses Novelty Paphiopedilums.
After receiving his degree in biochemistry from the University of Toronto, Dave opted to step outside his
chosen field and operate a tropical fish import business for eight years. Upon returning to school, Dave
received a degree in enology and viticulture from Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. While attending Brock, he began acquiring orchids one 2” pot at a time and before he graduated, Dave had over 100 orchids!

Winemaking and a passion for orchids prompted him to seek a warmer climate in California. He has been
growing paphiopedilums for about 15 years and seriously hybridizing for the past 10 years. As an accredited AOS judge his paphiopedilums have received over 100 awards from the AOS and CSA. Many of those awarded plants play important roles in his breeding program. In 2018, Dave left winemaking in order to focus all of his time running Paph Paradise Orchids. Dave will have orchid plants to purchase at the meeting.

This will take place in the Garden Center Auditorium, but will also have the option to join via Zoom. If you would like to attend virtually, please send an email to hotos.austin@gmail.com for login information.
