Monthly meeting on Feb. 21, 2017
Hello orchid enthusiasts! Just a reminder that the NOS will meet this Tuesday, Feb 21st, at Farley's on Stebner Road and Miller Trunk Hwy next to Gordy's. The meeting starts at 6:30 with social time starting around 6:00. If you plan on ordering a meal come early. You don't have to order anything of course! And it is ok to come late.
FYI, Ross will be bringing custom bark mix for $12 a bag, and has large bags of straight Kiwi bark for $46 available to bring. I believe the larger bark bags come in two or three size bark chunks so Ross asks that you contact him by Monday night if you want to preorder the larger bags. firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-232-3533.
Remember that Spring is an excellent time to be repotting, as or before roots start new growth. We will discuss the Como Show exhibit that Andre and Basil set up for us. Thanks to them, and all who were able to send plants and help our efforts. It was a fun Show to see and our NOS display was a beauty.
Hope to see you Tuesday! Bring your plants for show, sale or raffle. And bring any questions about orchid culture. Thanks, Gary 218-590-2398
Welcome to Northland Orchid Society!
Can you grow an orchid?
It's easier than you think and
it's fun and rewarding!
Thanks for taking the time to visit the Northland Orchid Society (NOS) website. Whether a beginner or an expert orchid grower, you will find all the wonderful things our site has to offer, and you are welcome to join the society if you are not already involved.
Like the passion you have for orchids, NOS membership is a truly rewarding experience. NOS provides a forum for us to meet and learn from each other on how to grow various kinds of orchids in you home. The annual orchid sale and various guest speaker and orchid show events allow us to share the appreciation and cultivation of orchids as a hobby.
