Monthly Meeting - Friday, September 5

Fri, Sep 5th
Lions Field (Broadway & Mulberry in San Antonio)

Come here Chaz Smith talk about Rupicolous Orchids on Friday, September 5. 

Having grown orchids for over 17 years, Chaz has been specializing in the rupicolous laelias for the last few years as they seem to do well in his natural conditions (rupicolous means "rock dwelling" and in nature this is where these types of orchids grow). Chaz will show slides of his growing area, talk about potting, culture, fertilization and care of the rupicolous laelias. Come learn more!
