Our Speaker for the CSOS June 20th meeting with be Jim & Melana Davison of Jim-N-I Orchids.

Their presentation will be The Four Horsemen Lecture.

This talk provides an in-depth review of four Cattleya species, C. schilleriana, C. walkeriana, C. aclandiae, and C. nobilior.  Why are they the four horsemen?  Because they love to be mounted.  Culture and care of these exquisite orchids is emphasized. This is a highly educational talk that everyone loves.

They will supplying the raffle table. They will also have orchids for sale as well. We will have our orchid judging. See the requirements on our website to enter your orchid for judging. Light refreshments served.
Guests welcome.

Jim and Melana Davison are AOS Accredited Judges. They have an extensive and diverse orchid collection that seems to be continuously growing.  Not only involved in caring for their orchids, they are actively involved in several South Florida orchid societies. Melana is the current President of the Orchid Society of Coral Gables and past President of the South Dade Amateur Orchid Club. Jim is the past President of the Orchid Society of Coral Gables and the East Everglades Orchid Society.

Jim’s appreciation for orchids stems from his scientific background. Until his recent retirement, he worked as a Nuclear Chemistry Manager at the Turkey Point Nuclear Power Plant. Melana is more interested in the aesthetic qualities of orchids, especially the ones that look strange and other worldly.  She owns her own Orchid Maintenance business and is known as “The Orchidiva.” Now that Jim is retired, they have opened their own retail nursery, Jim-N-I Orchids. They have been actively hitting the show circuit and will also be at both Tamiami and the Redland Show this year.  Together, Jim and Melana have 7 grown children and five grandchildren. They live in Homestead with their 4 dogs, four of the five grandchildren and 3,000 plus orchids in their personal collection, many thousands in the nursery.
