What is AEO?
We are drawn to the deep origins of orchids.
The complexity, beauty, and essence of their source is what comes through to us in our growing efforts. AEO is a way of experiencing and seeing orchids. In my eyes, how you perceive your orchids is how you grow them.

Orchid Portraits: Photography of A’na Sa’tara
Featured image: Cymbidium banaense
The vision t0 create orchid portraits emerged from my appreciation for the “whole orchid.” So many photographs of orchids focus only on the flower. But orchids are not flowers: they are entire plants and living beings. These images are an invitation to connect more deeply with the many dimensions of orchids.
