Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly President's Message:

It's Showtime!

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

Well, it's been HOT again - phooey. The most comfortable place on my property has been the greenhouse. The swamp cooler and fans have kept it really comfortable even during the worst heat. Let's hope the power doesn't go out. Hope you all have been able to protect your plants because it seems like we are in for substantial heat for the foreseeable future.

This month we do not have a regular meeting but have our annual "picnic" at Cal Orchid on Sunday August 26. I'm sure you have all received the email regarding signing up for it. Don't delay! There is limited space at Cal Orchid and this event is first come first served.

Hope to see you there!


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
