February 13th Meeting
The speaker for the February meeting will be Ron McHatton, the Director of Education for the American Orchid Society. Ron will discuss a variety of topics on orchid culture. He will answer any questions you may have regarding problem orchids and orchid growing in general. If you have a specific orchid that you would like him to address bring it to the meeting in a closed bag so he can diagnose the problem.
There will be a short meeting in March at the regularly scheduled MLOS meeting to plan the upcoming spring auction. If you are planning to be a volunteer or sell plants at the auction please plan to attend March 13 at 6:15PM.
Also don't forget to bring your orchids for the monthly show & tell after the meeting. There is also a silent auction held at the end of every meeting - you can get some great bargains! Don't forget to buy your raffle tickets for the drawing. See you there.
Our thanks to Donna Goodwin, our speaker for the January meeting. Donna is always very informative about growing Vanda's. She reminded us how important it is to water just the Vanda's roots and not the crown. Also light and air circulation is very important in growing healthy Vanda's. If you missed this opportunity to buy a special Vanda for your collection you can always visit the Goodwin's website at:
or visit their Leesburg location at 2902 South Street (SR44). Give them a call first to let them know you are coming.
