Latouria Dendrobiums by Linda Fries


Linda began growing orchids in graduate school with the purchase of a phalaenopsis-type Dendrobium from a Kroger in Bowling Green, OH. In 1993, she joined two orchid societies in the Washington, DC area, and joined the judging program the following year.


Linda is a geologist and science communications specialist at Rice University and is working part-time on her PhD at NASA on the next mission to Mars.


Linda’s program will be an overview of the Latouria Dendrobiums - where they come

from, their growing conditions, history, use in hybridizing with recent awards, what judges like about them and what they don’t, and current breeding trends.


Come see Linda on Thursday, January 3rd, 2019 @ 7:30 PM at the First Christian Church & School, 1601 Sunset Blvd, Houston, TX 77005.
