  "Plant Nutrition" by David Neal of Dyna-Gro

Known as Dr. Dyna-Gro, Dave Nealís presentation will emphasize the nutritional requirements of all plants, with analyses of the needs of some specific orchid genera. He will talk about the elements essential for plant nutrition. When David talks about elements, he means the real thing.  He will reference the Periodic Table as he describes plant culture.

He will also bring 40 liter bags of Dyna-Rok II and neat watering cans with the easy to use pump topped bottle of Dyna-Gro attached. Members are welcome to place a specific order in advance. Anyone wanting 5 gallon sizes, should pre-order. He will accept credit cards, checks or cash. See Daveís website at
