Topic: Picking the Right Plant

By Dave Miller

The Speaker for our May meeting will be Dave Miller. Dave is well known to most of us as an active member of the OSWP and many of the other orchid societies in nearby Ohio. Dave will guide a tour through some of the AOS award winners from our 2022 show and look at some of the other recent AOS awards. Picking a good plant from the start begins with knowing what characteristics to look for when adding a plant to your collection. As we proceed through the year, shows are over but there are sales tables and vendor sales going on throughout the year as well as trades with your orchid friends. Hopefully our tour will give you a better understanding of what to look for as your orchid collection grows and shrinks over time.
