Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly President's Message:

It's Showtime!

Hello Fellow Orchid Lovers!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer - don't forget to check your growing areas for excess heat - this is the time of year we need to keep our orchids cool and ensure that they get enough moisture.

2018 Library Show and Sale Biggest and Best Ever!

This was our 21st year of the show and sale and because of all your wonderful participation and donations it was the most successful ever. Once again we can afford to pay our speakers and put on all the fun events that we all enjoy. Thank you so very much to all of you!

Don't miss our upcoming meeting! We are having a special speaker from the Five Cities Orchid Society in the Arroyo Grande area. He will be speaking to us on something I don't believe we have heard much about at our meetings but which is a very big part of the orchid world - Masdevallias and pleurothallids. ALSO: we will be having a very special plant table, so plan to be there.

As you probably already know, we don't have a regular meeting in August but have our annual picnic hosted by and held at Cal Orchid. (Did I hear someone say guacamole?) Be sure to put this on your calendars for Sunday, August 26 [changed from 19th to the 26th].

And, see you at the meeting, Monday, July 9th!


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
