About The Event

[Sam] began growing orchids in the early 1980’s. After trying many types of orchids, he became a serious

Paphiopedilum grower in 1985. In 1990, he began hybridizing with Paphiopedilums and continues that work

today. As he became more involved with Paphiopedilums, he started selling commercially in 1995 as the

Orchid Inn. [18218 US Highway 150, Bloomington, IL 61705, Tel/Fax: (309) 662-2386,] He grew orchids in his basement and greenhouses attached to his house. As the

business grew, in 2004, he purchased six acres of property and built his first commercial 6,000 square feet

greenhouse. Currently he makes over 300 crosses, produces 4,000 to 5,000 flasks or approximately 100.000

seedlings annually.
