Open Forum

Questions & Answers


Our program this month will be an open forum of questions and answers. All members are encouraged to speak-up and tell us how they are growing their plants, etc.

Are you wondering why your plants are not blooming?  There could be many reasons why, bring the plant in and let us tell you why. 

Got Bugs? Need advice how to get rid of those nasty bugs.  (Please do not bring bug infected plants to the meeting.  Take a picture of the plant or put a leaf in a zip-locked baggy).

Why did one plant win a cultural award and the other plant win a first prize? We will have an in-depth review of the judging process.

The following are questions you might have:  When should I repot?

What type of medium should I use? What type of fertilizer, liquid or granules? 

Do you have any questions regarding the plants you acquired from the auction that you’re not sure of.  Bring the plant names, etc. Find out about the culture, growing conditions, etc.

Learn how other members grow their plants.  There are several members who only grow outdoors. Some have greenhouses.

This should be a very enjoyable evening so, sit back, listen, and ask questions related to what we all love best, ORCHIDS.
