Mount-up (The Science and Art of Mounting Orchids) 
presented by Liz Charlton

Are you awash in mushy roots? Do you have a collection of miniature orchids that started life as standards? Don’t give up. Give in. Surrender to your orchids; put them where they long to be … mounted on a shapely piece of fruit wood, treefern, grapewood or cork.
Liz will demonstrate how to mount orchids on a variety of materials and give hard-won advice on their care. 

Liz discovered orchids back in 2006 at the DVOS Show and Sale. Persuaded by the Show membership deal, ’14 months for the price of 12, a Bargain!’, she and Jamie joined on the spot.

Fast forward to 2011. They have an over-capacity greehouse, an eBay-based business, Orchid Gulch, serve on the DVOS Board and Liz is a Student Judge with CSNJC. Whew! Today, their orchids are no longer committing suicide as they are slowly, but surely moving to mounts.
