OrchidWire is designed, coded, and maintained by Wendell Kozak. I live on Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada's mainland.
I 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 I registered the orchidwire.com domain name. Since that time the site has undergone many changes. Currently, 1,987 orchid resources are listed:
If you know of a site (with at least some focus on orchids) not listed on OrchidWire, please send me the URL.
Listings are free.
OrchidWire 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!
