Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Is it cold enough? As I write this it has been raining, hailing, and sleeting on my patio! I guess this year will be a good test of those "temperature tolerant" orchids many of us grow without benefit of greenhouse. Well, it will warm up soon enough and then we'll be complaining that it's too hot.

It's always great to see everyone at our meetings so be sure not to miss our upcoming one. Our speaker, Tim Culbertson, will be educating us on a group of orchids (Pescatorea) that will no doubt be something completely new for many of us.

Don't forget that the Santa Barbara show is right around the corner!

See you at the meeting!

About Us:

The Conejo Orchid Society (COS) was formed to provide a setting where orchid devotees could meet to share their enthusiasm and knowledge, assist one another with orchid culture, and learn from invited experts. What we all have in common is a love of orchids and a desire for orchid knowledge. Members are encouraged to bring their blooming plants for display and judging. In addition there is a raffle of beautfiul plants at each meeting.

We meet the second Monday of each month from Janurary through November at 7PM at the Westlake Village Town Hall. In November our meeting is replaced by a holiday party.

Cymbidium Cattleya Oncidium Phalaenopsis Bulbophyllum Miltonia
