The Greater North Texas Orchid Society (GNTOS) is dedicated to the culture, protection,and appreciation of orchids all over the world. GNTOS brings together people interested in the culture and propagation of orchids, and also serves an educational function in disseminating information about orchids to the public.
We have regular monthly meetings (the first Sunday of every month) in which a featured speaker talks about an orchid topic (Genera, culture, etc); Orchids 101 for beginners, as well as plant show and tell and plant raffles. Our meetings are located at North Haven Gardens, 7700 Northaven Rd., Dallas, TX 75230. More details and a map are located here.
Whether you are an expert grower or just got your first orchid, we welcome all to visit our monthly meetings and events!
The upcoming Sept. 7 program on "Rupicolous Orchids, A Grower's Point of View" will be presented by Chaz Smith of Carlisle, PA, who has been growing orchids for over 17 years. FYI - rupicolous orchids grow on rocks! Chaz currently grows his orchids in a basement sunroom in the winter and under shade cloth outdoors in the summer. He will be bringing plants to sell.
For our 101 class at 2:30, Kathi McKenzie will be offering advice on getting your orchids to bloom. Come early and pick up some growing tips!
