May 13th meeting will be virtual.

Hello Everyone,

In view of all the closures and lockdowns, the Society has decided to have our meetings in a virtual manner (online) for the immediate future.

There is information in an email that was sent out, and also in our newsletter.

Rebecca has kindly offered to help us figure it out! There will be a help session online on Tuesday, May 12. If you feel you may need help with signing in to the meeting on Wednesday, please take advantage of that.

Hope to see everyone there!

COS 2019 Orchid Show – American Orchid Society Awarded Show Trophy to the Connecticut Orchid Society for Display


The COS hopes you and your families are well.  As we are all aware, the Covid-19 virus is moving at a rapid pace. After careful discussion, the Connecticut Orchid Society’s Board has canceled our April 4 & 5, 2020 Show and Sale.

The board believes this is prudent to ensure the safety of our vendors, society members and guests from possible transmission of this serious virus. We look forward to next year’s show and we hope to see you all there!

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this fast-changing situation.

The Connecticut Orchid Society will hold its own American Orchid Society sanctioned orchid show on Saturday, April 4th (12pm-5pm) and Sunday, April 5th (10am-4pm).  The location is the Bristol Senior Center at 240 Stafford Avenue, in Bristol, Connecticut.  Early admission/entry is available for photographers on Sunday, April 5th (9-10am).  Plants for your shopping pleasure are available from the following vendors: White Plains Orchids, J&L Orchids, orchidPhile, Frosty Hollow Orchids and More.  Potting materials and supplies will be available.  Divisions of plants from Society member’s collections will also be available for purchase.  Educational and potting materials will also be available.

The show theme is ‘Spring into Orchids’ and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase plants from orchid vendors, attend informative lectures on orchid growing, and enjoy the beautiful bounty of orchid displays on hand.
