Activities

The Brisbane Orchid Society caters for the needs of both the beginner and advanced grower. Beginners are especially catered for.

At monthly meetings, the more experienced growers are only too happy to answer questions for beginner growers. Feature items of significant value to all members are organised for monthly meetings. In plant competitions, beginners compete with others of a similar standard as themselves.

New growers meetings are held bi-monthly.  These are practical hands on sessions designed especially for beginner growers to enable them to successfully grow orchids.

Visits to various orchid collections are held at frequent intervals. These are excellent opportunities for beginners to see in practice the fundamentals of good orchid culture.

Every member also receives a monthly newsletter packed with Orchid information and the latest information from the Society to ensure that members have access to all the latest information.
