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!
March 2014 MEETING
Our program for Sunday, March 2 will be a mock AOS judging session. It will be a mock session since no actual AOS awards will be given, but it will show the actual process the judges use when they look at orchids to award them. You will have the opportunity to see how they decide what flower is "award-worthy". To see an actual judging event, you can go to the Garland Senior Activity Center at 600 W. Avenue A, 75040 next Saturday at 11am. For more information about the Dallas Judging Center, visit their website at http://gntos.org/djcwpnew/.
Spring Orchid Show Postponed
Our spring show planned for this April is postponed until April 2015. Houston had chosen the same weekend by chance and since they were further ahead in their plans, we will move to next year. Later this summer, you can find more details here. If you can, visit Houston sometime during the weekend of April 12-13 and enjoy their show!
