April 2016 – Paul Tuskes

Paul TuskesPaul TuskesThe Palomar Orchid Society is pleased to welcome back Dr. Paul Tuskes. Paul’s presentation will be on “Encyclias and their relatives”.

Encyclia and related genera occur from south Florida to Brazil and live in a wide range of habitats and elevations….. meaning they are ideal for everybody.  He will focus on the best plants for the San Diego area and some of their hybrids.

Paul has been growing orchids for 30 years and his photographs have been used in various books and journals.  He serves as an AOS orchid judge and co-founded with his wife Ann the orchid species study group of the San Diego County Orchid Society. He was one of the first members of that society’s conservation group, which received a Conservation Achievement award from the American Orchid Society.
