Other Information: Born in Borneo, not far from the home of Paphiopedilum sanderianums, Leslie was raised around orchids his entire life by his grandmother and mother, both of whom treasured local orchids. They taught Leslie how to grow and flower them at a young age, and he never looked back since. Leslie has since grown many varieties over 30 years, but his favourites are Cattleya species, Paphiopedilum species, novelty Phalaenopsis, and miniatures, with a few botanical varieties thrown in. At present Leslie has over 500 plants, a majority of them selected and heirloom Cattleya species, and three orchid tanks, including a cool tank with Dendrobium cuthbersoniis. Dr. Ee has travelled the world to attend orchid shows and nurseries (such as Japan, Ecuador, Colombia, US, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia). Leslie is an AOS Associate Judge with the Toronto judging centre as well as President of the COC. He is committed to the sharing of orchid knowledge and conservation efforts of local orchids around the world.
