About Us

Join us for a meeting!

Do feel free to come to a meeting - you don't have to be a member to come to an evening meeting to check us out.  We meet at 6:30 PM for Culture Club where you bring orchid-growing problems or even bring in your problem orchid and an experienced grower will try to help you find a solution.   

Goals of The Club.
Our aim at the Manatee Orchid Society is to give orchid lovers an opportunity to share orchid culture and care experience, while educating and entertaining in a social and practical way.  Our prime objective is to acquaint our members with the diversity of orchid species and encourage the acquisition of  rare and unusual varieties for preservation and enjoyment of future generations. 

Why you should become a member...

Increase and share your knowledge about growing orchids.  This is a great way to enhance your collection - speakers often bring in orchids you can purchase - we have member sales and almost always have a raffle.  We even have repotting sessions to show you how to correctly repot your orchid.
