Program:  Holiday Banquet / Elections


We will be having the Holiday Banquet and Elections. Please feel free to bring a family member and a potluck dish to share. We will also have our holiday plant giveaway so make sure to come and enjoy the festivities.


Each meeting will have a show table in which everyone is invited to bring in their blooming orchids to show off. This is a great way to see what other members are growing and how they do so. 

New members and visitors are also invited to bring any plants they wish to show or have questions about.

At Left

Masdevallia princeps, an orchid species plant. This a first-time bloom for me, I was blown away by the color and size, over 12” from tip to tip! There is a second spike coming. It is a sequential bloomer, meaning don't cut the spike after the flower fades because many more will follow from the same stem.
