Speaker: Carrie Buchman

Topic: Mining the Internet for Orchid Information: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Carrie has grown orchids for over thirty years and tends her 150+ plants, which span the alphabet from Aerangis to Zygopetalum, in a converted sunroom. Now retired, she is active in the North Jersey Orchid Society where she is a Director and Show Chair. She’s also a member of the Philadelphia Flower Show Orchid Committee.

Carrie’s presentation will show us how to obtain good orchid culture information from the internet. She will discuss her favorite sites as well as those to avoid and show us some of her success. So if you have ever wandered forlorn amid endless Google results for a plant you just bought or want to buy, wondering whose advice is best for your situation, Carrie may help you decide!

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!
