The last couple of years have presented MAJOR weather challenges in growing our orchids outdoors, where most of us keep all or a large part of our plants. This photo shows the heartbreaking damage that one of our members suffered during last month’s windstorms.
While some weather events are so extreme that they will damage much more than just our orchids, join us Monday, January 25 at 6 p.m. and learn some of the things you can do to protect your outdoor orchids from raging winds (like last month), freezing temperatures, unseasonably warm winter weather (like now), too much rain (like last year’s spring), and too little rain and humidity (like now!).
Due to the Covid situation, all meetings are currently being held virtually using Zoom. These sessions are limited to COS members.
Q&A and informal discussions are held after the speaker’s presentation.
The objectives of the COS shall be to stimulate an interest in the collection, culture and appreciation of orchids; to foster and encourage culture, growing, hybridization and preservation of native and hybrid orchids; to disseminate information by exhibits, lectures and publications.
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 are refreshments, and a raffle of beautfiul plants at each meeting.
