Meetings include:

  • Raffle table of orchids.
  • A show & tell table of blooming plants brought in by members.
  • Light refreshments.

Our program this month will be orchid repotting!  Got plants you want to repot, but don't know how?  This is the time of year to get those orchids cleaned up and in some fresh potting media.  Come learn about differnt types of repotting mixes for different types of orchids, how to mount plants on bark slabs, and when to repot your plant.  Non-members can bring plants to repot for a small fee (except Cymbidiums).
