Social and Culture Questions 6:30 PM

Cox Arboretum


Speaker: MVOS Members

Topic: General Orchid Culture


What questions do you have about growing orchids?† Ever wonder how another member is able to grow a particular plant so well?† Is this you first plant and have many questions about watering and fertilizing?† The March meeting will be a lively discussion by society members through a general question and answer format.† This will be a great opportunity to ask any and all questions to find out how other members are growing their plants here in the Miami Valley.† This will also be a great time to begin to get to know our new members as well.†


All are invited to dinner at the Thai Kitchen on Kingsridge Drive behind the mall† about 5:15 prior to the meeting even though we donít have a speaker.

We would like to welcome about 40† new members who signed up at the show!† First, welcome to all of you and we look forward to meeting you!† Second, just a reminder to all the existing members to introduce yourself to the many new faces we will have at the meeting!



We were able to purchase about 30 orchids from one of the vendors at the end of the show and we will be having a silent auction for the plants.† Bidding will start at $10 per plant and whoever has the highest bid at the end of the break will be the winner!† So, bring your checkbook and competitive spirit and pick up a couple more plants that you missed at the show!
