The Show Chairman is Christopher Watson (753-5427) and Co-chairperson is Judith Davis (349-4669). You are welcomed to contact them regarding any information about the show or if you will like to assist in any way possible. The Show Committee comprises the following members: Anis Baig, Anthony Navarro, Naeem Daniel, Acklima Daniel, Dave Marcus, Angie Forde, Ronald Seucharan, Lynn Seucharan, Linda Deonath, Antonio de Gannes, Jason Pierre, Atisha Hudlin, Helen Holley, Krystal Harrylal, Gervais de Matas and Gopaul Chackan.

Tickets for the show will be available from the March Monthly meeting. Vending contracts will also be available. Interested vendors should come prepared to register and make payments. The Show Committee has agreed that a cut off date for vending applications will be April 23rd at the Monthly meeting.

The committee is also trying to re-introduce the show Brochure. Any members interested in submitting articles, pictures or advertising in the Brochure can contact any member of the show committee.

Members interested in doing a display at the Show can contact Anis Baig (350-7539) or Lynn Seucharan (684-9580) for assistance. It will be a great idea to start collecting foliage plants and creating your theme for your personal display. This makes the actual set up of the display easier.

Importance of Staking

It is essential to stake an orchid inflorescence if the plant is being transported to a meeting or show. The movement of travel can easily damage flowers or even break an inflorescence. Many orchids will present their flowers in a more pleasing manner if the inflorescence is staked. Use the link below to read the full article about stalking by the American Orchid Society.
