[OGD] donation to the Wheeler Collection - by Charles Bracker / Indiana (US)

"An estimated 1,000 orchid plants were donated to Ball State University's 
Wheeler Collection by... Charles Bracker of Purdue University.

The donation doubled the Wheeler Orchid Collection and Species Bank to a 
total of nearly 2,000 orchids.

Orchid research technician and curator, Sheryl LeBlanc, said...
"They are different types of orchids... Half of which are from different 
species... and the other half are beautiful hybrids."
...
Bracker grew all of the plants in the four rooms of his basement as a hobby.

The greenhouse... located in Christy Woods on Ball State University's 
campus... is open to the public at no cost."
