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.

Annual Spring Orchid Auction

Our Spring Auction this year will have top quality, hand selected plants, from many different genera.

The selection includes mini-cattleyas from Sunset Valley Orchids as well as orchids from Taida Orchids, including Phalaenopsis, Oncidiums and various others.

We thank John Sullivan and Richard Ho for being our auctioneers for the evening.

Please remember to bring cash or check for your payments. The rent at the Nature Center has increased this year and the proceeds from the auction help to pay for the rent and high quality speakers.

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!
