Next Meeting info


August 12

For the August meeting, here will be a pre-meeting potting session starting at 6:15 PM.  Pots and media will be available for a suggested donation.

Anyone is invited to bring an orchid plant for which they have a question about its care and Edgar will be the "Answer Man" during the meeting to the questions.  If the plant may have bugs, please put it in a closed plastic bag to prevent contamination of other plants.  

Third, there will be about phalaenopsis plants for sale $4 each or 3 for $10.  The plants have no ID tags but some have a note as to the color of the flower.

Game Night: Orchid Jeopardy. Come join us for a fun night of orchid games and trivia. 


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.

Doors open 6:30 pm, Beginner's Corner at 6:45 pm and meeting starts 7:15 pm. Portage Lakes Kiwanis Center, 725 Portage Lakes Dr., Akron, Ohio 44319 

Coming In September

Our September 9 meeting will be our 2nd Member Plant Auction followed by  "Orchid Diseases Part 1" with Jane Bush. This is one meeting not to be missed!


Bring plants and orchid related items to sell to society members. We all have purchased plants that don’t do well in our environment or refuse to bloom for us, bring them to the auction and hopefully you can find something new and exciting to take home with you. 

Plants are priced and auctioned. The seller takes home 75% of the final price and the society receives 25%. Please bring cash/checks only and please do your best to remove all pests before being auctioned, thank you.

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.
