Orchid Society Members: Can You Help?

Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018 at the Magnolia Hotel Dallas Park Cities

We have been given a great opportunity to highlight orchids and our society.  Manny received a very special request from Art Chadwick

“I was wondering if any orchid society members in the Dallas area have some large flowered Cattleyas in bloom that we could borrow for a photoshoot with Laura Bush on Thursday. The event will be written up later this year in Orchids magazine.
We could use up to a dozen plants – any color.
The event is from 3 to 5pm and they could be dropped off at the Magnolia Hotel in Park Cities by noon.
Thanks for your consideration!”    Art Chadwick   Chadwick & Son Orchids    Powhatan, VA


  • They are able to use about 6 orchids – they are are looking for large flowers, multiple blooms, any color.
  • Remember to groom plants as if they were going to a show
  • Have the plant name and  your name marked in the pot or on the base somewhere
  • You should use nice/decorative pots
  • Drop off time Thursday is between 10am and Noon
  • Leave them at the Concierge desk with Anna – she will have a special place to keep the orchids
  • Pickup time is after 8pm
They want six plants, but we don’t know how many will be available.
So, if you have a suitable plant, bring it!
