About Dr. Bill
Everything concerning Dr. Bill's Orchids is done by one man- Me!
I’m currently a medical student who tries to balance the orchid addiction on the side. The majority of my personal collection and plants for sale are now grown under lights and span a wide array of species and hybrids of various genera, majority of which being Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium. I started the Dr. Bill’s Orchids sales group on Facebook in 2018 to sell extra seedlings from flasks/compots and it has only grown since.
My main passions are in the Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium species, although Phalaenopsis species and their novelty hybrids also hold a special place in my heart. My current projects include Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, and Phalaenopsis hybridization and flasking of the resulting seed pods.
Dr. Bill currently has memberships/affiliations with the following orchid groups/societies:
Illinois Orchid Society (IOS), a non-profit orchid society serving the greater Chicagoland area
PhalFanatics, an international non-profit Phalaenopsis enthusiast group
Orchid Digest, an organization dedicated to orchid education and conservation
The American Orchid Society
