Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly President's Message:

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Well, as you can see by the article [in this month's newsletter], Conejo Orchid Society has done it again. The wonderful display that was designed and built by our members won two prestigious prizes at the Santa Barbara show. Thanks to all who helped with the display and especially to Bill Gunning who oversaw the whole Herculean effort. Thankfully we finally got some much needed rain last week - thought we'd never get any. Per the weather people, it doesn't look like we will get any more and that the weather will be warming up quite a bit now. Don't forget to re-adjust the shading and cooling in your greenhouses and other growing areas as the warmer temperatures can overheat your plants very quickly if not controlled. Once again we are having a great speaker and topic at this month's meeting, so be sure to attend!

See you at the meeting,

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
