Please keep your eyes open for a special edition newsletter coming to dues paying members in the next few weeks. Since we do not have a meeting in July and August we thought we would provide something extra to keep all of us enthused. Not hard to do with most of us "Orchid Nuts". Meanwhile, here is picture of one the nice Paphiopedilum's from our Spring Show. Its called Sorcerer's Apprentice. It won't be long until our October show at Krohn is here.
What is The
Cincinnati Orchid Society about?
We help people grow,
about orchids. We teach the public and orchid enthusiasts how to
for and protect these beautiful plants in their
homes and greenhouses. Many orchids are endangered in their native
habitats, which are
now under extreme
pressure. Growing orchids in homes and greenhouses, besides being
enjoyable, is vital for preserving
the magnificent plants that can no longer survive in the wild. The
Society does public presentations at various events and organization
around the Greater Cincinnati area. Contact
us if you would like us to attend your event or check our calendar periodically to
see what is already scheduled. Donations are appreciated.
