About Big Leaf Orchids

Peter Lin started growing orchids as a hobby over 30 years ago, adding to this expanding orchid hobby with his own hybridizing. He started his company, Big Leaf Orchids, in 1996, a family owned operation in Southlake, Texas, specializing in Phalaenopsis orchids. Peter travels to Taiwan annually to see the newest in Phalaenopsis breeding, allowing him to hand-select new varieties for his clients and incorporate many into his hybridizing program.  Peter specializes in growing Phalaenopsis because their flowers are long lasting, 2 to 3 months indoors and even longer in a temperature-controlled greenhouse. Peter has been recognized with numerous AOS awards, one of the most prestigious honors in the world of orchids.  His other interest in orchids includes the genera Vanda, Cattleya and Paphiopedilum.
