Clark Riley has been an active orchid grower since 1957. At the age of six, he got his first plant, a [probably collected] Cypripedium pubescens from a perennial nursery. The plant died a miserable death in a short time, but not before blooming and cementing a love of orchids that has lasted over half a century. He has labored ever since to make amends by promoting the sound cultivation of Cypripedia. He grows a wide range of orchids, including several thousand terrestrials, hardy species, and ladyslippers, Brazilian Laelias, and specialty Phalaenopsis, often from seed. He was the producer for the book and CD of Proceedings of the North American Native Terrestrial Orchid Conference. He is a member of the Maryland Orchid Society, the American Orchid Society, the International Phalaenopsis Alliance, and a frequent contributor to the Orchid List Digest. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his Cypripedium web site.
The MOS brings together people interested in orchids to promote and encourage orchid culture, preservation, education propagation, hybridization, and all other orchid-related activities of interest to its members. Benefits of membership include a subscription to the Newsletter (email and web), voting rights, borrowing privileges from the MOS Library, monthly guest speakers, local judging, valuable door prizes, and much, much, more!
The official MOS official address is P.O. Box 5651, Baltimore, Maryland 21210
