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:
