We take pleasure
in welcoming two new members to the Society
Davanand and Sakina Deonarine Pole # 9 Seecharan Street, Tacarigua
As members, you will now be constantly exposed to the world of orchids,
learning about their culture, how to display and exhibit orchids and gaining
in-depth knowledge by accessing reading material from our well stocked
(1) Arching Vandaceous Orchids
orchids such as those in the genera (Rhynchostylis and Aerides) sometimes
produce inflorescences that are hidden in the foliage. This can be remedied
by gently wedging a short piece of bamboo stake between the leaves and
the inflorescence to force the flowers to present outside the foliage.
Vandas present better if the flowers are gently "flattened".
This is best done after the flowers have been open a day, Vandas, especially,
need copious amounts of water as buds are developing to plump up the flowers.
Water twice a day during the dry season.
SEE YOU AT OUR SEPTEMBER MEETING ON SEPTEMBER 19TH 2010
