Next Meeting: The Auction! – Oct. 3, 2022

We’re continuing our Fall orchid season this year with the annual GROS Auction. Come join your fellow members for an evening of great orchids and great fun! With many wonderful plants up for bid, everyone is sure to find a healthy, beautifully grown orchid – at an affordable price, too! You’ll be able to bid on plants that our buying power as a club brings to our members & friends at truly spectacular savings. If you’ve been paying attention at our meetings, many of the spectacular orchids seen on the Show Tables have been Auction plants bought by our members.

The Auction is a wonderful way to add to your orchid collection at very reasonable cost. Remember, every plant you buy at the Auction helps the GROS in running our many yearly activities. If you have friends who might be interested in our Auction, bring them along! The Auction is open to everyone, free of charge.

A list of plants up for auction – in bidding order – will be available for download here – please check back. Plants will be available for preview at 6:00 p.m. and bidding begins at 6:30.

For those of you who’ve never attended one of our auctions, there will be orchids for windowsill, under-lights and greenhouse growers, orchids for experts, orchids for beginners – orchids for everyone! We will have a good selection of both hybrids and species, with some plants in bud and bloom! You can pay for your plants with cash, checks, or credit/debit cards.

We expect the auction to take all of our meeting time. Members are encouraged to bring a snack to share. Here is a list of all plants up for bid. Please print it out and bring with you to the Auction.
