Speaker: Sheldon Takasaki
Topic: Easy Growing Orchids & Some Other Things from Hawaii
Date: February 7, 2019
Sheldon Takasaki, the owner of Carmela Orchids in Hawaii, will present
our February program. His program is titled “"Easy Growing Orchids
and Some Other Things from Hawaii" ”. If you have never heard Sheldon
speak you are in for a treat!
Sheldon is a long-time friend of the Boca Raton Orchid Society. He has
been a vendor at our orchid shows for many years. As a young Hawaiian
boy, Sheldon grew up picking “field orchids”, the flowers used to make
leis and to put in the drinks of tourists in Hawaii.
Carmela Orchids is located in Hakalau, Hawaii. The nursery was founded
in 1960 and has grown over the years from a small collection of orchids
grown on top of a bomb shelter to a multi greenhouse operation with
an in-house lab. Carmela Orchids is well known for its
high standards of quality.
*** Sheldon will supply our Raffle Table and will bring plants
to sell. Sales of plants by members will not be permitted at this meeting.
