Our annual “potting party” is a great way for orchid lovers to try new varieties without spending a lot of money. Frequently, our members will bring in a spectacular blooming orchid which started as a purchased seedling at a past potting party. At this meeting, seedlings, potting mix, pots, and labels will be supplied, and you get the opportunity to choose which seedling(s) you’d like to purchase. It’s lot’s of fun!
