Next Meeting:  February 8, 2019

For our February 8 meeting, in lieu of a speaker we are having a very special opportunity table and extended show and tell.  Orchids for the table will be from Andy’s Orchids On A Stick. Many of you have visited his exciting booth at the POE and other shows. Andy’s is located in Encinitas Ca. The family-owned nursery is known for specializing in mounted SPECIES orchids. They cultivate over 7,000 different species  (traditional favorites to the rarest exotics) and have an inventory of over 750,000 plants.  Andy will choose an assortment of species for our opportunity table!

We will also have a special show and tell with an emphasis by some of the Board members on preparing them for our upcoming show.  Scott Collins our society member and AOS judge will end the show and tell with more detailed information on how to enter your plants in the show.

You do not need to be a member to enter a plant in our show!  If you have a beautiful orchid you want to show off, please bring it to Cabrillo by 6 pm Friday, March 1.
