Four Topics – Count ‘Em!
After our great – and exhausting – Spring Show last weekend, the GROS will give you a chance to bring in your plants that weren’t ready in time for the Show (if it doesn’t snow…), kick back and listen to a variety of Society speakers on a range of topics that’s been frequently requested.
There will be lots of time for your specific questions on any of thse topics, and we are confident that our panel will be able to help you with any of your orchid-growing questions.
Jeanne Kaeding, GROS President and an active American Orchid Society judge, will speak about ribbon judging vs. AOS judging, and new trends in what is being awarded.
Fran Murphy, world traveler and Hawaiian orchid maven, will have some hints for moving your plants outside to gain the benefits of the coming summer weather.
Lewis Tandy, long-time member and our Man From The USDA/FWS, will talk about treating pests and diseases in the least toxic manner.
Phil Matt, our webmaster and ardent phalaenopsis enthusiast, will try to unravel some of the mysteries of LED lighting for indoor growers.
Members are free to bring in their own plants for sale or trade.
The Show Table will be back, so please don’t forget your flowering plants. We’ll see you there!
