"Give it a Rest"
by Marni Turkel
Many plants receive a dry rest period in their
native habitat. This
talk explores some of the factors involved. Learn a bit
about weather patterns and the
“make it or break it” effect a dry rest
period can have on growth and flowering of particular species.
You’ll see some plants that many people find hard to bloom
and find out how to get a great blooming by giving them
what they need.
Turkel is a native of the S. F. Bay Area and has been growing
orchids since 1980. She
grows an uncountable number of plants in a wide range of
genera in her three Santa Rosa
greenhouses. She has a special interest in cool-growing
