Next Meeting: Thursday 14th  February  7:30pm
 "Orchid Culture"
by Alan Koch of Gold Country Orchids 
Specializing in Award Quality Miniatures, Compact Cattleyas and Phalaenopsis

Alan Koch will share his culture secrets and answer the questions that keep you awake at night:

                    Should I pot in bark, charcoal, perlite, moss, broken glass, or old tires? 
                    Is there any dark magic that can save a plant with no roots?
                    Why would anyone pour hydrogen peroxide, seaweed extract, or Woolite on their plants?

Get answers to these questions and Alanís successful recipes for every thing from fertilizer to
fungus (remover). And, with any luck, you will go home with some new plants to practice on.
