February 2016 Meeting

Our speaker will be Greg Griffis. Greg is currently the curator of orchids at Longwood Gardens. Some of our members may remember Greg when he worked for Parkside Orchids. He later moved to Hawaii to acquire more orchid expertise. Approximately 2 years ago he returned to our area to assume the post at Longwood Gardens.

Greg topic is timely with so many new members. Nothing is more satisfying for a novice grower than reblooming an orchid with more flowers than when the plant was acquired. An important aspect of cultural success is the selection of orchids that are "easy" to grow. Greg will describe 12 orchids that fit that criteria.
