Our January Members Choice is Laeliocattleya Orange Trick x Epidendrum ciliare, brought in by Sue Bottom. The flower shape is dominated by the ciliare species, but the color comes from the Lc. Orange Trick, exhibiting the best of both in the hybrid.
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 February, we'll be talking about bud blast and flower blighting.
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.
