Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Hello Orchid Lovers!

Well, wasn't that a great Library Show and Sale? Lucky for us it was quite a success - we were worried that the Memorial Day weekend would keep us from having a good turnout but we seemed to do just fine.

We had 21 new members sign up at the show - wonderful! I hope all of them will be at our next meeting. Our June meeting will be particularly good for all these new people as it will be a multi-subject culture session. It will be a great opportunity to get some important information on how to grow all those new plants that were purchased at the show.

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed time and/or plants to the show - it wouldn't happen without all of you!

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 guest 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.

The Monthly Judging Form can be downloaded and printed, or obtained at the meeting before judging starts. Participants receive a free raffle ticket. Please submit plants at least 30 minutes before the meeting starts to qualify for judging. See our monthly newsletter for the results, and more!

Members wearing their badges can receive a free raffle ticket when signing in for the meeting!

The American Orchid Society has printable Culture Sheets.

A few other materials we have available are on the resource page with a list of our lending library books and misceallaenous orchid documents.
