The October meeting of the Jacksonville Orchid Society will be held at the Garden Club of Jacksonville’s Riverside location on 8 October, 2019, starting at 7:30PM.
Jerry Meola, Amore Orchids will be our featured speaker. We expect he’ll have orchids for sale although we do not know the topic of his presentation at this time.
The Jacksonville Orchid Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month (except in May and December) at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 1005 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204. The doors open at 7 pm. Guests and visitors are always welcome! If you decide to join after coming to a few meetings, membership is $25.00 for a family and $20.00 for individuals.
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.
Members are encouraged to bring blooming plants for a friendly judging at the Show Table. Show Table Instructions and a link to the interactive Show Table Forms are available at:
Members are also invited to bring a maximum of two plants (per member) for a silent auction. The JOS receives 20% of auction receipts and the grower receives 80%. The Plant Silent Auction Form is available at:
