March 10 Meeting
Our March meeting is not to be missed – our “Master Grower” competition begins! At this meeting, a baby orchid will be available for each member with the challenge that whoever has the best of the babies in one year will have their name engraved on the Master Grower plaque.
Starter plants will be sold to members at the meeting for (a whopping) $1! Again, over the next year whoever gets 1st bloom or, if that doesn't happen, has the best plant at the end of one year, will have their name engraved on the Master Grower plaque. The honor of being a master grower is an inspiring experience!
So good luck everybody! This should be fun.
Also, bring in your past Master Grower Orchids for evaluation and possible inclusion on the Master Grower's plaque.
The noon class will cover repotting and will also answer questions on pests and diseases.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens except for:
May (Annual Picnic)
July and August (Vacation)
December (Holiday Luncheon).
Our meetings are venues for information sharing and interaction with professional growers and speakers as well as classes. Meetings also include “Show and Tell” for members to show off their blooming orchids, raffles, orchid exchanges, and refreshments. We have an annual picnic, holiday luncheon, and a large orchid show. The show is sanctioned and judged by the American Orchid Society.
Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in orchids, regardless of an individual's level of expertise. We believe that we should "pay it forward," taking what has been taught to us and sharing our knowledge with others, both within the Society and with the general public.
We invite you to join us and learn about orchids.
