The Ramapo Orchid Society, Inc. is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to the love of growing orchids . We meet every month ( except July & August) at the
Flat Rock Brook Nature Center, Englewood, New Jersey.
At our meetings we feature guest speakers, hands-on workshops, and an opportunity to trade growing secrets with some very experienced members. We always have a show table, and affordably priced orchids from local vendors. Special events include our yearly show, a great auction, and a fun Xmas party. The society is open to anyone who shares our love of orchids, so why don't you come and join a terrific bunch of people.
We are an affiliated member of the American Orchid Society (AOS) and Northeast Judging Center.

February Meeting: Potting Party

Learn how to properly re-pot your orchids. We will talk about when to re-pot, what size pot to use, and what type of potting media is most appropriate for each type of orchid.

We will also talk a little about healthy roots, how to prune them if necessary, and what it means if yours are not doing so well.

Everybody will get the chance to re-pot 2 beautiful orchid seedlings which you can take home and add to your collection.

Fee for orchid seedlings, pots, labels and potting media is $10.

This is one of our most fun hands-on meetings - so please join us and have some fun!
