The topic for the
meeting will be a Video presentation on Mexican
Cattleyas interpreted for local growing conditions by our well know
grower Curtis Lutchman.
Please bring along
your blooming orchids for the Show Table, remember
new members (persons in their first year of membership) compete for a
separate plant prize. Cattleya species and hybrids will be of
particular interest to see how they compare with the Mexican species
shown in the Video presentation.
