Next Meeting: Thurs. 13th March at 7:30pm
Tom Perlite "What’s Bugging Your Collection?"

A well reasoned rational discussion on ridding your orchid collection of pests and a review of other diseases commonly affecting orchid collections. Bring a plant that you have a question about and we’ll see if we can get an answer for you.

Tom Perlite is one of those men who needs no introduction. Suffice it to say he’s one of the paramount growers in the San Francisco Bay Area. His business, Golden Gate Orchids, sells cooler growing orchids than we can (usually) grow out here in the semi desert. But he can offer insight into the common pests that plague, perturb and pester us.  Tom is and AOS Judge, a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and another of the many Bay Area orchid growers that came up through the ranks at Rod McLellan & Co. at a time when Frank Fordyce managed the orchid department. And he’s a heck of a nice guy to boot. - Kathy Barrett
