It’s been a very strange year for our little orchid club. We have had most of our monthly meetings via Zoom, and experienced a second year without our traditional Spring Show. But nonetheless we’re forging ahead and hoping for a better year in 2022.

The GROS is going to kick off the holiday season this year with a rousing round of orchid repotting! The Repotting Workshop will be on Sunday, December 5, 2021. It’s from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Fran Murphy’s propane-heated garage (next to his large greenhouse) at 6815 Aldridge Road, Victor, NY. This will be a members-only event: you will need to sign up ahead of time in order to attend. You can email our Treasurer Susan Ackerman from the form here, or call

Bring a plant that you think needs repotting and we will help you to do it. There will also be discussions on potting mixes, controlling moisture in your pots by choice of potting mix, etc. There’s always something even experienced growers can learn about repotting! There will be a Show Table so you may bring along your blooming plants for the other members’ enjoyment. If you wish to bring a food item to share, please feel free to do so. We’ll see you there!
