October 1 meeting – “So, you bought an orchid!”

Now what? Learn the “now what do I do?” on October 1! Pick up some tips on keeping your orchid alive longer, maybe even get it to rebloom! There is an old orchid adage: “An expert orchid grower is someone who has killed more orchids than most people will ever own”. So even if your previous orchids have succumbed under your care, you can learn and do better next time! We will have our usual snacks provided, along with the table orchid judging for members and the raffle for everyone.

Orchids 101 will be a Q&A session led by Charlie – as usual, if it’s too hot, we will meet in the classroom rather than stay in the greenhouse. See you there!

A reminder: Our December meeting will be the 2nd of our 2 auctions for this year. This Fall, look over your orchids – would you like to replace some orchids with some new ones? Did you get several divisions this year from a repotting? You have a chance to donate some orchids to help the society pay for its Spring Orchid Show and Sale AND pick up some new orchids for your collection. So, begin thinking about what you can donate now.
