This month, Greg Griffs returns from Longwood Gardens with the topic: The Wonders of Orchid Roots!

  • The Wonders of Orchid Roots:
    • “The life of the plant is in the new roots.” The roots of an orchid plant determine its health. We’ll talk about the structure and function of the roots, how they interact with the environment, and how to best facilitate good root culture. We also talk a great deal about watering, as watering and potting are two of the most important aspects of orchid growing. This talk is excellent for the beginner and intermediate grower alike, aimed at fine tuning our understanding of orchid culture on the whole.
