Ross Hella, Deerwood Orchids
Topic: Mini Paphiopedilums

Ross and Julie Hella had been growing a wide variety of orchids in their home for over 25 years. In 2001, Ross decided to begin hybridizing Paphiopedilums, concentrating on smaller growing plants. In 2010, with orchids growing in literally every room in the house, they built an 800 square foot permanent greenhouse to hold their collection. At the same time, they started Deerwood Orchids. To date, Ross has sent 342 crosses to the lab for germination. Ross and Julie have received 34 flower quality awards, 5 cultural awards, and one Award of Quality from the American Orchid Society. They currently live near Deerwood, Minnesota with their son, Scott, and greenhouse helper, Mini. Ross will be selling Plants. Click here for their plant price list. Pre-orders will receive a 10% discount. Deadline for ordering will be Saturday, September 10th. To order email Ross at rosshella53@gmail.com. He will confirm orders via return email on Sunday as he pulls plants.
