Our February Members Choice is Dendrobium Red Senator 'Maxim', brought in by Susan Smith. This is one of the nobile-type hybrids that requires a coolish dryish winter rest before it bursts into its spring blooms.
We meet on the first Tuesday of each month. The meeting begins with a plant sale followed by a review of the show table plants and presentation by an orchid expert. The meeting closes with a plant raffle where members can expand their collections. It's fun and informative for growers of all levels. Join us, visitors and guests are always welcome!
We have a beginners culture class before the main meeting, starting at 6:15. In March, we'll have a demonstration on staking your orchids.
Ace Repotting Clinics.
The first Saturday of the month from 9 am til noon, February through October, St. Augustine Orchid Society members are available to talk with you, answer questions and help you repot orchids.
