Annual Orchid Show

Annual Spring Orchid Show – Postponed

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the GROS has decided to postpone our annual Spring Orchid Show for 2020. We hope that all of our fellow orchid growers stay safe and enjoy their orchids while we await the end of this public health crisis. We plan to reschedule the Show as soon as it is practical, and will keep our friends and orchid enthusiasts updated through this website and via our email list. We thank you all for your understanding!
