UPCOMING EVENTS

The Orchid Genus Masdevallia – June 17, 2014

  • Alfonso Doucett from University of Wisconsin Madison will give a taxonomic overview of the orchid genus Masdevallia. This genus is a charming and intriguing group of orchids from South America. Be prepared to learn much about this fascinating type of orchid. – 7pm, Ambridge Event Center

On the Media – Part 2 – July 15, 2014

  • We’ll be ordering in several types of orchid plugs for you to go home with – the experiment is that we’ll have several types of orchid media for you to pot your plants in. Potting each plant in a different media (that should work best for your environment) we’ll see how each one does in the long run. – 7pm, Ambridge Event Center

OOS Picnic – July, 2014

  • Details and date TBD – our society picnic is always a fun time with members, their friends and family. We’ll set the date at our June general meeting.

April Monthly Meeting: Rhonda’s Greenhouse – April 15, 2014 – 7pm

OOS member Rhonda is getting a greenhouse!  She’s very excited – but this affords us the opportunity to help contribute to the process of greenhouse construction and to learn from it as well.  If you’re a greenhouse owner, share what you’ve learned with Rhonda (and the rest of us) and if you’re considering building a greenhouse you can learn from those that have already built one.  We’ll go through the process from the bottom up – prepare for a fun and engaging time!

May Monthly Meeting: On the Media! – May 20, 2014 – 7pm

There are lots of things that orchids can grow in.  One recent speaker told us about a successful orchid grower that potted in tennis shoes.  OK, we won’t be discussing things THAT outside-the-box, but we will look at the many options for orchid media – with the goal of helping you decide the best way to grow the orchids you have, and the orchids you want.  We’ll be preparing for a group supply order that you’re welcome to participate in.
