Early exposure to houseplants, flowerbeds, and vegetable gardening was common for Allen in his formative years.

Currently, he is a hobbyist orchid grower and breeder (i.e., non-commercial) living in Richmond, VA.

Allen has been growing and breeding orchids for over 20 years.

His main breeding efforts have been directed at Brassavola-Cattleya alliance novelty hybrids.

He has registered over 70 of his orchid hybrids.and has also “dabbled” in daylily breeding, producing 12 registered daylily hybrids.
