Jim Hamilton & Ron Ehlers "Easy to Grow Orchid Species"

Jim Hamilton will discuss why this is not a conflict in terms. I know, you always thought orchids were difficult. Not a bit of it! At least according to Jim! Hehe!!

Petite Plaisance is located in the hugely small town of Valley Ford in Sonoma County. It makes a pleasant day trip to drive through the green, rolling hills of Sonoma County out to the coast. Call in advance to arrange a visit. 

March Awards

Petite Plaisance deals mostly in species orchids. They have a few hybrids (check out the picture of Zygopetalum Imagination and Stanhopea Assidensis ‘John’ on their webpage, yum!) You’ve all seen their sales booth at all the local shows, laden with delectable hanging orchids in baskets and on slabs. Cool growers, intermediate growers, orchids from the commonplace to the sublime. (Do I sound too much like a fan of theirs? I hope so.)
