Event Details

Primer on Orchids

Margaret Bridge of Black Meadow Flora

Primer on Orchid Culture

Orchids are Mother Nature’s long-lasting alternative to cut flowers to cheer indoor settings all year long! Through presentation and discussion of orchids, we will dispel the myths and encourage confidence in the novice that growing orchids in your home can be an easy and very rewarding endeavor.

This class covers general orchid culture of a variety of commercially grown and available orchid genera including: phalaenopsis (the “Moth Orchid;”, paphiopedilum (the “Lady Slipper”), dendrobium (“the Spray Orchid”), Cattleya (the “Corsage Orchid”), cymbidium (the “Boat Orchid”), miltonia (the “Pansy Orchid”) and plants within the Oncidiium and Odontglossum alliances.

We will discuss orchid culture in some depth for each of the genera, including temperature, water, light, nutrients, growing medium, ventilation and a bit on pests. We will also touch on related topics including repotting, propagating and purchasing orchids. Class members are encouraged to ask questions and to bring their own orchids if they have concerns about their health.
