“Phalaenopsis, their Culture, Care and Re-blooming ”
We are honored to host Paul Tuskes as our February speaker. His presentation will
be on the culture, care, and re-blooming of Phalaenopsis orchids. Paul will briefly
review the various species that have contributed significantly to our modern hybrid
Phalaenopsis. He will then discuss best cultural practices to ensure the production '
of strong well-bloomed Phalies in non-commercial settings. With the hobbyist
growers in mind, he will offer various solutions for problem plants.
Paul has been a longtime member of the San Diego Orchid Society and has
authored a number of books on Phalaenopsis species and hybrids. He has also
contributed numerous articles to the Orchid Digest and has been a frequent
presenter at Orchid Digest Speakers Days conferences. Paul invites our members
to bring your questions. Please join us via Zoom to attend this special presentation
by this well-known authority on the genus Phalaenopsis .
Come join us this month VIRTUALLY to hear this excellent speaker through ZOOM. Instructions on how to access the meeting will be provided to MOS Members just before the meeting.
We are an award winning, volunteer run, 501(c) (3) non-profit organization formed in the spring of 1963 to develop interest in orchids; to aid and assist members with orchid growing and culture; and to provide educational information, which shall benefit its members and the community.
During non-Covid times, we meet at 7pm on the third Tuesday of every month (except for December and August when no meetings are held), at the Pacific Palisades Woman's Club, 901 Haverford Ave.
At each meeting members benefit from expert speakers who present illustrated talks on various orchid genera and their culture. Members display orchids for ribbon judging each month and share tips on how their plants are grown. The Society also holds a silent plant auction as well as a raffle table for orchids. Upcoming events are announced and fellow orchid enthusiasts consult with each other on the culture of various orchid species.
