February 2017 Meeting

Our February speaker will be Greg Griffis. Greg is the orchid curator at Longwood Gardens. He received much of his training from Tom Purviance and John Salventi when they were the owners of Parkside Orchid Nursery. He later worked for Hilo Orchid Farm in Hawaii before leaving for his current post.
His talk will be focused on orchids roots and how they reflect the health of your plants. This should be a very informative talk that will provide incite on how to grow your orchids more successfully.


January 2107 Meeting

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.
