Peter Lin
Brassavola Species & Hybrids   

Peter started growing orchids over 30 years ago, but then stopped due to school and starting a career. It wasn’t until about 11 years ago that the orchid “bug” came back and he is now heavily involved once again! He is an accredited judge with the American Orchid Society, and a hybridizer of mini-catts. He enjoys meeting with other orchid enthusiasts, and can often be found at various orchid show and societies around the country.

Due to limited growing space, Peter likes to specialize in miniature orchids, both species and hybrids, and has received numerous AOS awards. His interest in orchids includes Dendrobiums, Angraecoids, and Neofinetias. He is also known as “Mr. Sophronitis” as he has a passion for growing and collecting them.

He maintains a collection of a thousand or more orchids at his home in Southern California in 3 small greenhouses, outdoors, as well as an offsite greenhouse.

Peter currently is an active member of our society. He is our auctioneer for our annual fund raiser last month.
