Doors will open at 6:00 PM and the meeting will begin promptly at 6:45 PM. Prior to the start of the meeting, please buy your raffle tickets.
At 6:45 PM, we will have a brief business meeting and then take a short break in preparation for the presentation by noted orchid expert Steve Authur (see https://www.stevearthurorchids.com). He will speak on “Orchids Are Hard To Grow – Are orchids really hard to grow or are you not choosing the right ones for where you are growing?”
JOS members may offer as many as two orchids for Silent Auction. No member sales are permitted at the July meeting.
Members & Especially Novice Growers – Don’t forget to bring your blooming orchids for the Show Table and no-pressure judging.

Our General Meeting is a good time to ask questions from our expert growers and get tips for what to do when there is a problem. We cover 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.
