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!
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.
The largest orchid show in the Pacific Northwest, this orchid show has vendors and exhibitors from near and far. It’s always a fun time and includes educational seminars, orchid repotting, photo contest, auction, American Orchid Society judged displays and, of course, thousands of orchids for sale. You can buy tickets online or print out a discount coupon. Keep your eye on our showpage for information including participating orchid vendors.
