Ramapo Orchid Society

The Ramapo Orchid Society (ROS), 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.

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.

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 holiday party.

Hunting Orchids in Ecuador

Frank is a biologist who has been studying the ecology, biology, and taxonomy of the genus Phragmipedium throughout natural populations for the past twenty-five years.

Frank has been traveling to the jungles of South America to gain a better understanding of this species and to successfully grow them.

He has been to many famous orchid nurseries and has met some of the most well-known names and personalities in the phragmepedium community.

He will also bring plants for sale and we will have a raffle.

In addition to our monthly judging, we participate in a number of orchid shows throughout the center, providing AOS judging as well as taking part in ribbon and trophy judging.

There will be an educational forum and discussion in the morning beginning at 10:30 on a wide range of topics related to orchid judging. Plants being submitted for judging should arrive no later than noon that day; actual judging of plants begins after a lunch break, generally no later than 1 PM.

The Northeast Judging Center of the American Orchid Society sponsors a monthly judging event.

Judging takes place every 3rd Saturday at 9:00 AM!
