We were so excited to welcome Jose Exposito from Soroa Orchids as our August speaker! We had one of the largest turn outs to hear him speak! Everyone enjoyed his informative but entertaining presentation on orchid growing followed by questions & answers (and there were many questions) Thank you Jose for a wonderful evening!

OUR SEPTEMBER speaker was Tomas Bajza speaking on “Giant World of Miniature Orchids & Simple Setups”.Tomas Bajza reached a momentous conclusion some 10 years ago: He could not continue to grow large orchids on an apartment balcony! So he got rid of all his large plants and embarked on a venture that enabled him to overcome the skeptics. In the last decade, he has succeeded in growing miniature orchids, not only on that fifth-floor balcony, but also inside the apartment. And many of those plants are considered to be better suited for cooler climates. Tomas places diminutive orchids into three categories: micro, miniature, and small. Thank you for a great presentation!
