Next Meeting: Thursday 10th August 7:30pm


Joe Grillo:  Bulbophylum

Our speaker for the August 10 meeting will be none other than our very own Joe Grillo.  We have all seen the quality of the plants Joe grows, all the more impressive as he has three children and a dog to maintain as well as his orchids.  He will be talking about bulbophyllum.  These have to be some of the most weird and wonderful of the orchid world.  Joe claims to have been growing orchids for only 7 years and gained his information from DVOS, books, the internet and the familiar to all of us method of trial and error.
It will be a very informative talk with an emphasis on culture, so those of us still trying to make these plants bloom may get the information needed.

The plant table will be provided by Joe Grillo.


No host dinner with the speaker:
will will be at La Tapatia, 1802 Willow Pass Road in Concord  (tel 925.685.1985) (map) at 5:30pm.  If you would like to attend please call Eileen Jackson at 707-642-5915 or email Jackson.eileen@att
