Bad Plants. Bad Plants.*
Whatcha Gonna Do?
Whatcha Gonna Do When They Happen to You?

Ja-Rule Olivas & Ice KB

Fresh from the Parole Office, Ice-KB (leader of the Thrips gang) rejoins
Ja-Rule Olivas (infamous leader of the Buds) to discuss
 "Why Oh Why Can't I?"  Grow orchids, that is.

What you need to do:

Bring us your bad plants.  Your tired, your weak, your orchids yearning to
breathe free...  oops - wrong speech.

Bring in the orchids you've been having trouble with and we'll discuss ways
to improve their culture.  Not some theoretical orchid growing in
conditions from some far away land (like Florida). YOUR orchid, YOUR
conditions.  C'Mon!   Even Dave Tomassini has a bad plant or two, so don't
be shy!  After all, how can we help you if we can't see what you're doing?

Ribbons will be given to those with the worst plants (ie the opposite of
the way we usually hand out ribbons.)  And there'll be a drawing for prizes
(but with a catch!)

Any plants with bugs or diseases PLEASE bring them in a plastic bag so as
not to contaminate other plants.

Raffle table plants have been supplied by the judges from the Pacific Central Judging Center.  Some choice stuff there.

The speakers dinner will be at Suwa's Japanese Restaurant, 2151 Todos Santos Park, Concord.   Phone number  925-825-3201  We will meet there at 5:30 PM.  For those interested in dining with Kathy and Dennis please join us.  Please call Eileen Jackson at 707-642-5915 by April 11, so reservations can be made.

Website Note
Still no new photos of awarded plants.  My apologies.  We had to recover from major computer 'meltdown'.
