April 3 meeting – The 2020 Japan Orchid Show in pictures!

The speaker for April’s meeting will be Cesar Uchima, who was born and raised in Peru.  He first encountered orchids when he was a child.  Presently, he is the Director of Pre-Production at Casa Flora, one of the major fern and foliage producers in the United States. Cesar will be presenting the 2020 Japan Grand Prix International Orchid and Flower Show, which is one of the biggest orchid exhibitions in the world.  It was open to the general public over eight days.  Visitors enjoyed intricately arranged orchids and flowers of more than 200 installations.  Exhibitors from over twenty countries were present.  Roughly 100,000 orchids were displayed.  This presentation will take you on a journey to experience this show. Afterwards, we will have our usual table judging for members, and a raffle for everyone!

Orchids 101 will be in the front of the Greenhouse. Charlie will be leading a discussion on controlling mites on your orchids.
