This month's meeting will feature a workshop on mounting orchids on Kool-Logs. Kool-Logs are ceramic and provide the following benefits: a better mounting surface and aeration of the roots, continuous even moisture to the roots, cooler temperatures of the roots, and decreased frequency of remounting/repotting.
What do you need to participate in the workshop?
A Kool-Log and a small orchid to mount.
Thirty Kool-Logs remain available for purchase.
First come, first serve.
For Kool-Logs ($8.00 each), call or email Andrea (email@example.com).
Bring a small orchid for mounting. If you don't have a small orchid, five small dendrobium keiki's are still available. Again, first come, first serve.
For a small keiki ($2.00 donation), email Diane (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our show has lots of activities for all to enjoy to include:
Starting in May 2023,our meetings will be on the 3rd Monday of every month at 1:00 p.m. at the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens except for:
June (Annual Picnic)
July and August (Summer Break)
December (Holiday Luncheon).
Our meetings are venues for information sharing and interaction with professional growers and speakers as well as classes. Meetings include “Show and Tell” for members to show off their blooming orchids, raffles, orchid exchanges, and refreshments. Meetings frequently include an educational workshop starting at noon. We have an annual picnic, holiday luncheon, and a large orchid show. which is sanctioned and judged by the American Orchid Society.
Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in orchids, regardless of an individual's level of expertise. We believe that we should "pay it forward," taking what has been taught to us and sharing our knowledge with others, both within the Society and with the general public.
We invite you to join us and learn about orchids.
If you’re a member of our Facebook group, post pictures of your blooming orchids (https://www.facebook.com/groups/PSLOS/).
