I really do not know where the majority of our orchid's here in the states come from. I have read that most Cattleyas come in from Taiwan, but I do not know about others. Anyone else know? AL
    In 2010, up to October, Taiwan exported orchids to the value of US$77.6million . And remember that the plant you buy for US$20 is sold from Taiwan for $2.....All this from a cold start about 10-12 years ago ! Those guys work very hard. I admire them.

    I have also had the pleasure of visiting several of The Netherlands "orchid factories" and of being taken as a VIP on a conducted tour with all questions answered; one of them was a single greenhouse of 7 hectares extent (1 hectare = 10,000 sq metres -or say 110,000 sq ft). It housed 1.3 million plants, and was run by a staff - including office - of 17 people. I saw Cymbidiums in 5 inch pots with three spikes, coming off the production line, 16 months after being planted as a "plug" single growth, the size of a pencil. I am filled with awe at the standard of cultivation they achieved - and could write pages about it, and - to some small extent - without knowing the fine details - how they do it.

    It sounds like you have taken "the Grand Tour' on the continent, or at least orchid wise that is. This is neat information and I look forward to your new threads when you come back from Africa. Thanks for the new threads and posts Geoff! AL
