Your president will be speaking at our January meeting. My topic will be "Growing for Perfection: Secrets Shared to Help Garner Cultural Awards". Over the past 10 years I have embraced the challenge of growing species or hybrids to "perfection". When an orchid is grown unusually well the AOS can give that plant a cultural award. This a growers award and honors the individual for his achievement. In this talk I will show you how you can strive for these awards.
