December 2022 Meeting

Our President Steve Dorsey started the meeting by welcoming all who came to our holiday gathering. 

Steve let all the members know that people with food allergies and special diets had desserts provided for them in the kitchen, for everyone else could get a free dessert with their meal at the food truck.

He then covered the raffle ticket system we used this year for our holiday plants. Members would need to check in with Mike Corey or Bill Leicht and get a raffle ticket which would be called later and allow members to go select the holiday plants.

The holiday plants were sourced from these three vendors this year. If you enjoyed them, please visit them online.

January 9 2023 Meeting: Speaker, Tennis Maynard – “Trichopilias: Underappreciated Gems”

Tennis Maynard has been growing orchids for over 45; he built a greenhouse 15 years ago to house his collection of orchids.

In his time growing orchids, he has received ten AOS awards, including three for the genus Trichopilia.

Like many of us, Tennis grows a wide variety of genera from warm-growing Vandas to cool-growing Maxillaria including many ‘botanicals’ such as tonight’s topic Trichopilas and even our native Cypripediums.

November 2022 Meeting

Steve Dorsey, President, began our meeting by introducing our speaker Peter T. Lin who spoke to us on Neofinetia and its hybrids. Before Peter began his presentation. Steve had Robert Culver speak about the new Plant Table Tag System. This system is being put in place to help both our photographer Sean Hoyt prepare the photographs for our gallery and to allow each of us to identify the plants more easily when we are walking about the Plant Table.
