The speaker for the month of September was Sam Tsui of Orchid Inn. A renowned expert, his talk was on the multifloral Paphiopedilum of southern Asia. Sam reviewed the 16 or so species that inhabit Borneo, Indonesia, the Philippines, China, Burma, Thailand and Malaysia. This included some rather recently discovered species such as thaianum and gigantifolium. He also showed many primary hybrids and the characteristics from each parent as well as some additional hybrids.
