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 we have a featured speaker. There is also an orchid table show 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!
Oct. 4 meeting (3pm)
The weekend after our orchid show will be the next monthly meeting. Emily Quinn will be talking about "Sex and the Single Orchid" or "How to Get Pollinated". It should be an interesting presentation so come and spend some time with us! Emily, like her mother, Linda Horton, who presented at the Sept. meeting, is an accredited AOS judge. She went shopping for some ferns some years ago and brought some home, along with some orchids. And so began an on-going interest in these striking flowers. After the presentation, as always, there will be table judging and an orchid raffle. See you there!
Orchids 101 will meet at 2:30 in the greenhouse. Kathy McKenzie will be helping us figure out fertlizing. Join us!
