General Membership Meeting

September 17, 2019
 

Location: Velma McWayne Santos Community Center - Wailuku

 

 

Do you have 10 favorite orchids?  David Rose, owner/operator of Cal-Orchid in Santa Barbara, California, tells us he has 10 new favorites on almost a daily basis.  At our September meeting, David shared his most recent list of his favorite orchids.  His selection took us around the world from Mexico to Madagascar and encompassed several species and hybrids.  His photos and detailed description of each plant demonstrated his enthusiasm for orchids and hopefully inspired members to come up with their 10 favorites - for now...

Speaking of a demonstration, MOS Members and Maui orchid growers Jeff Parker and Carol Choda offered a beginner's session to show us pests, discuss control and eradication of pest and then how to prepare your plants for an orchid show.

And guess who won Show and Tell's Advance division this month?  Of course it was Andy Okada with his Stanhopea saccata.  Cinaca Lazo took the Intermediate Division with her Blc. Ports of paradise.  What happened to the Novice Division this month?  There were no entries so next time, bring in your plant and you could win. All Show and Tell winners take home a plant.  

And remember to sign up to volunteer at the next event - Orchidland at the Maui County Fair October 3-6.   Everyone is welcome!

Another meeting with some yummy snacks! 

A great way to take a few minutes at each meeting to 

enjoy the fellowship with other MOS members.
