Our October "Orchids in the Park" Show and Sale has been cancelled due to COVID-19.


Join Us Next Month:
Because of the COVID-19 situation we do not have access to Room 101 in the Casa Del Prado building. Our General meetings and Board of Directors meetings will be held using the Zoom app.


Our next monthly meeting is Tuesday, October 6th. Our speaker will be Lou Jost, Director of EcoMinga Foundation. The title of his presentation is "Discovering, documenting and rpotecting hotspots of orchid enemism in Equador - The 2020 legacy of a 2000-2001 SDCOS grant".
This meeting will not have a Culture Class but will feature a virtual plant forum. If you want to participate, please send 1 to 3 images of plants in bloom now with the data we normally have on our tag (click here) to -  president@sdorchids.com.  We’ll share as many as we can. In August we held our first Zoom based Culture Class on the Wednesday after our General Meeting. This went very well and we expect to continue doing this.

Our Purpose: To promote interest in orchids and their cultivation, to educate by exchanging information and experiences related to successful orchid culture, and to support the conservation of orchids in the wild.
