Welcome to the Conejo Orchid Society

The Monthly Message:

Happy New Year Orchid Lovers!

I hope you all had great Holidays and are prepared for an exciting new COS year. We already have several wonderful speakers lined up for future meetings and are gearing up for the Santa Barbara show in March and our annual Library Show and Sale. Be sure to watch your email for announcements regarding planning meetings for these and other events. We just had a meeting about the Santa Barbara show and have come up with an exciting design for our display. We always welcome input and more participants.

Not too much else to report right now, just be sure that you have your plants under some kind of protection against the coming rains and cold weather. Remember: wet and cold together are generally pretty deadly for most orchids. If you can't keep all your plants warm, at least keep them as dry as possible on those cold nights!

See you at the January 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
