Thursday, April 24th, 2014, Trey Pyfer of Little Brook OrchidsThis month, Trey Pyfer of Little Brook Orchids will be speaking about “Common Orchid Pests: Pest and Fungi Management.” Trey is the manager of the eight greenhouse orchid nursery and retail store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. For more than ten years, he has been responsible for all the orchid care of a large variety of genera. Trey supervises all watering, repotting, pest control, and general care of more than 8,000 plants in the complex. He is also responsible for the care of many additional “boarded” orchids and tropical plants, kept for customers in the winter or non-blooming seasons. He was first exposed to orchids as a teenager through his father, John, who collected and grew orchids as a hobby in two home greenhouses. Trey did not focus on horticulture during his college years, so he is essentially self-taught (by experience, reading, and trial and error). In his spare time, Trey enjoys playing electric guitar and attending live concerts.
Trey will be taking pre-orders. Please call Little Brook Orchids at 717-394-1000.
Reminder: The April MOS Meeting will be Thursday, April 24th!
