Raising a Show-Quality Orchid

September 29 2017 · 11:00am  – 1:00pm


Most people don’t realize how easy it is to enter an orchid in flower shows! This is a more advanced orchid class that discusses the conditions necessary to grow a vigorous, healthy orchid for competitions, and explains things like timing orchid blooming, maximizing orchid growth, and how the judging works. It is pertinent to orchids anywhere, even if people have no intention of showing them. There will be a book signing for Barbara’s new book, Orchid Care: For the Beginner, also.

Instructor: Barbara Schmidt, American Orchid Society Education Committee Member
Class Fee: $50 (Members $35)
