The July 7 program on “Recent Barkeria Hybrids & Line-bred Species” will be presented by Dr. Robert Marsh, a Society member for 37 years, and orchid grower for 60 years. Dr. Marsh retired as Associate Head of the Molecular and Cell Biology Dept. at UT Dallas, and now teaches biochemistry as a part-time Senior Lecturer. He has received American Orchid Society awards and now works to popularize Barkerias among orchid hobbyists. We will have our usual table judging and raffle after the talk.
Orchids 101 will be at 2pm in the greenhouse. Lorna will be talking about fertilizing your orchids.
