OrchidWire is designed, coded, and maintained by Wendell Kozak. He is in on Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada's mainland. He started this project in 1996 as "Pollinia". Pollinia was a web directory, combined with a web crawler, that indexed only orchid-related sites. Both the crawling and serving was done over a dedicated 56K modem! In 1999 HeI registered the orchidwire.com domain name. Since that time the site has undergone many changes. The main focus now is on making OrchidWire the most comprehensive source for orchid site listings available!
Listings are free. The Napa Valley Orchid Society is included on this site.
This site is visited by people from over 120 countries every month. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and discover many interesting sites about orchids. Please come back often!
Editor's note: I used this web source, focusing on "United States > California" and listed many of those web sites (links) on this web site.
