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
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.
plant table will be provided by Joe Grillo.
