Event description
This program is a three-part series for the serious orchid grower who has gone beyond the beginner’s stage. Classes meet one Saturday per month from 9:00 to 11:30am.
Series Schedule:
August 10: During It’s All in the Flower, features of orchid flowers and associations with pollinator partners are explored, as well as relationships between different orchid species and genera.
September 28: Growing Orchids in Tune with Nature centers on how different orchids grow in their environments and how that translates into growing practices. Orchid partnerships with fungi, in addition to orchid pests and Integrated Pest Management are also discussed.
October 12: At the Potting & Troubleshooting Workshop, participants who have a concern about their plants are encouraged to bring in one or two of their orchids for a diagnosis. Problems are addressed, including the need for repotting. After a repotting demonstration, orchids are supplied for the class to repot, which they take home. Orchids which have particular issues in the greenhouse may also be examined.
Please arrive at the Orientation Center at least 20 minutes early because the van leaves for the Orchid Range promptly at 9:00am. Dress in layers; the greenhouses are warm. Dress apropos to repotting orchids for the Workshop.
