For years, we've held meetings of like-minded island residents and visitors; people who appreciate, grow and want to learn more about orchids.
Here in the subtropics, many orchids grow easily and we love helping others learn how to do it well. Our members are novice, intermediate and advanced orchid growers - and everyone is willing to share what we've learned. Our professional members and guest speakers bring an additional wealth of knowledge to us... at every meeting.
Our speakers come to us from all over the state of Florida and beyond. They're chosen for their knowledge and their ability to share that knowledge.
Many speakers are commercial orchid growers and we ask them to bring plants to sell and plants for our popular raffle table. Periodically, we offer all members an opportunity to repot a plant or plants with assistance. We occasionally purchase books, fertilizers and other supplies at favorable prices and resell them to members at our cost.
We learn and have fun together!
