Eron Borne


Professionally, Eron is a pilot, but he is also a very diverse orchid grower and breeder. He received his first orchid (a cattleya) as a gift from his dad in 2002 and first started growing them hanging outside, on windowsills, and then under lights. His orchid collection really took off in 2008 after he built a greenhouse and now has about 1,000 orchids. He specializes in phragmipediums and blue cattleyas, and has even done his own hybridizing. His orchids have received numerous local and AOS awards to date including the 2020 AOS James and Marie Riopelle Miltonia award.

Eron is the current Vice-Chair of the AOS Education Committee, and immediate past President and current Webmaster & Secretary for the Central Louisiana Orchid Society. He is also an AOS student judge with the Louisiana Judging Center in Alexandria, LA. Eron loves sharing his passion for orchids with others. He currently lives in Harrisonburg, LA along with his wife Anna, and his twin daughters Elizabeth and Julia.
