Program: 2nd Member Plant Auction / 

Orchid Diseases Part 1

Speaker:  Jane Bush

We will hold our 2nd Member Plant Auction of the year. 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 do your best to remove all pests before being auctioned, thank you.


Jane will discuss different orchid diseases, their prevention and remedies in this 2-part series.



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

October 9: Orchid Diseases Part 2 with Jane Bush

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.
