Orchid Society of Greater St. Louis
Calendar

Members are encouraged to bring their flowering Orchids for display on the show table at our regular meetings. Attendees then vote for the Orchid that catches their eye and at the end of the meeting, first, second and third place winners are announced. There is also a show table for novice growers to display their plants. Awards are given at the December Christmas party and dinner.

Many of our speakers are also Orchid growers and bring plants to sell. So come early to get a first pick of these choice plants.
