Guest speaker: Trey Sanders

Topic: The Genus Dendrochilum

Trey will make his presentation from 'across the pond' in England, where it is five hours later than the U.S. East Coast. Thus the reason for the earlier meeting start time. We greatly appreciate Trey staying up so late to speak to us.

SPEAKER BIO: Trey Sanders was born and raised in Australia and relocated to the United Kingdom (England) in his early 20s. Now firmly settled in the UK, Trey has amassed a large orchid collection in three greenhouses. He mostly grows Pleurothallids, Coelogyne, some Angraecoids and his favorite ge-nus, Dendrochilum. Trey has ambitions of having the world’s largest private collection of Dendrochilum (he may already have it). His Dendrochilum collection currently contains about 400 plants, 56 different species, many unidentified, and six species yet to be described.

Trey set up the website, www.dendrochilum.com, back in 2009, as a digital and modern enumeration of the whole genus. Trey had the support and backing from many scientists and herbaria globally. The website is currently being rewritten with even more interesting articles being added. The current project Trey is working on besides the website is writing field guides and distribution maps for the ge-nus for use in the wild, a task not yet undertaken for other genera. Trey sells orchids as a side busi-ness to help fund orchid interests and travels around the world looking for them.
