Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - Monthly Meeting - Our guest speaker this month is Thomas Voytilla. Thomas has been raising orchids since 1998. Soon after he discovered his passion for them, he learned of the semi-hydroponic growing method. He has now refined this growing technique with experience to bring its advantages and ease to all orchid lovers, both novice and experienced. They raise their orchids from flask/plugs and now have a large variety of mature plants well-established in the semi-hydroponic system. His presentation details his experience with the semi-hydroponic growing method, with supporting pictures of root growth across the different genre and specimen size plants. He has plants and supplies available for sale as well. Here is the link to his website: http://theorchidhouse.org/ Please join us!
