Join us to watch the DVD titled The Judge, The Hunter, The Thief and The Black Orchid.
The orchid world is full of eccentric characters, petty rivalries, competitive judging, hunters, smugglers and thieves. It's also a world undergoing tremendous change. Orchids were once only accessible to the very rich. Now they're as common as a dozen roses. Large nurseries are producing cheaper, cloned orchids for the mass market and Orchid hybridizers are a dying breed in the face of this competition. One small orchid grower is standing up against this trend. For Fred Clarke orchid hybridizing isn't just a business, it's an art.
