Jacksonville Orchid Society members and friends!  Plan to join us on the evening of 11 October when noted Orchidist Roy Tokunaga will be our featured speaker. We expect a great presentation where he will draw upon his more than 40 years of experience.

Roy will be offering a selection of orchids for sale at the meeting. If you are interested in pre-ordering, please see his Summer Price List and use his order form, both at the links below.

General Information:

We conduct an Orchid Culture Class for beginner and new growers needing assistance beginning at 7 pm. This is a good time to ask questions from an expert grower and get tips for what to do when there is a problem. The class covers a wide variety of topics including species and hybrids that are good to grow in this area, identification of pests and diseases, watering and fertilizing, and where to grow your orchids.  As a general rule, guest speakers often bring orchids for sale to members, guests and visitors before or after the meeting.

Our general program with guest speakers begins at 7:30. During the program, we hold a general business meeting, serve refreshments, listen to an inspiring presentation by an orchid expert, participate in a raffle, and look at many beautiful and exotic orchids brought in by our members on the “Show Table.”

Members are welcome to bring blooming plants for a friendly judging at the Show Table.  Novice growers are encouraged to bring their orchids for the Show Table as we have reserved a Special Category specifically for them.
