A joint initiative between Phipps Conservatory and the Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvania to create and cultivate an orchid collection of note for enjoyment, education and research.

May, 2024


Pfun at Phipps is our OSWP repotting efforts as well as doing the inventory of the Phipps orchid collection.  We are also helping as the Clean-up Crew and whatever Giovanny needs.  We are now going to Phipps most Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:45AM – 12:45PM. It’s a great learning experience for all of us.


Our goal is to help Phipps grow their orchid collection to one of national note, as well as the growth of the Barbara Tisherman Slipper Orchid Collection, a living museum of slipper orchids.


Be sure not to miss Phipps Summer Flower Show, “Under the Sea.”  It will be a wonderful way to welcome summer! It opens May 4th.


If you would like to join our Pfun/P-OSI efforts and haven’t previously signed up with us, please let me know at the email address below


Thanks and looking forward to working and learning together. . . and having Pfun!
