Alexey moved to Canada in 2005. He acquired his first orchid in 2006 and received his first American Orchid Society (AOS) award 4 years later. To date, his plants have received numerous AOS awards, including a CCE - the highest cultural award. Along with many amateur orchid growers, Alexey began his hobby by growing orchids on windowsills and under lights. He has an eclectic collection of orchids. Today, his diverse collection ranges from warm to cool-growing plants, and is accommodated in a greenhouse and orchidarium. Alexey has also experimented with creating new orchid hybrids. His first blooming hybrid was registered with the Royal Horticultural Society (England) in 2013. He has a lifelong interest in photography, and images he took of his orchids were published in the newsletters of Orchid Societies, in the AOS Bulletin and posted at the Orchids Forum.
