Wednesday, February 13th, meeting will be held at the CHESHIRE Senior Center located at 240 Maple Ave, Cheshire, CT 06410
Guest speaker: Beth Davis from Waldor Orchids
Topic: “Welcome to the Weird, Wacky, World of Orchids”
“What is a Beth Plant?” We will take a world tour as “Beth Plants” include the following families: Bulbophyllum, from Africa, Asia and Latin America; Stanhopea, from Central and South America; and Dendrochilum from Southeast Asia.
Spring is coming and we will all be working with our plants. Beth Davis will do a re-potting demonstration along with a demonstration of proper grooming and staking of your orchid plants.
Beth will bring plants for sale and take pre-orders on supplies. Waldor sells everything they use on their own orchids; potting mixes, plastic and terracotta pots, fertilizers, green string, wood and plastic baskets, hangers, etc. If there is an item a member is looking for that they don’t see on the list, or if there is a plant on a member’s wish list that they think Waldor might have, they can email Beth with their request. Here is a link to the Waldor website: https://www.waldor.com/ and below are links to the Waldor supply lists.
