The Happy Medium: Workshop on Potting Mixes

We get so many questions about orchid potting mixes, we’re going to do a whole evening devoted to the topic! Woody Brundage (our esteemed Prez) will lead the discussion and explain a wide variety of mixes currently in use by growers, with some actual samples on hand, explaining their origins, their best uses and availability.

MOST important, we’ll cover how to water your plants, because YOUR watering habits determine which mix is best for your plants! We’ll leave plenty of time for questions and further discussion, because if there’s anything that brings out varying opinions, it’s potting mix!

It’ll probably be cold -- hey, it’s January -- but if you can bring flowering plants

If you are not yet a member, you can try before you buy! You are invited to attend a meeting to see what it"s like, even before you join.

Learning from fellow hobbyists with similar interests and growing conditions is the best way to achieve success! Our members are happy to share their tips and expertise. We grow on windows, under lights, in greenhouses and gardens, here in New York City!
