Topic: Mounting/Potting Party
Date: August 9, 2018
Carmela Orchids in Hawaii has supplied the plants for tonight’s mounting/potting
program. Most of the plants are Cattleyas and some are Dendrobiums.
All plants are seedlings and most will not bloom for at least a year
or two. The mounting materials available are tree fern, three pieces
of cork, and a sponge. You may bring your own
mount or pot if you wish.
If members wish to mount their own plants, they are welcome to do so.
If anyone wants to bring a plant to be repotted, that’s fine also. Although
members will have priority access to the plants and other materials,
guests will be invited to participate. Everyone will take home their
work of art.
Materials participants need to bring for tonight’s program:
If mounting, bring fishing line or polyester thread to secure
the plant and moss to your mount.
If repotting, bring a new or clean pot, along with a pot clip
or two for anchoring the plant.
If you are planning to repot a plant, please email or call Marion
and let them know.
This will help us know how much materials to bring.
This meeting is a little different and hopefully will be a lot of fun.
Your feedback and suggestions are always appreciated.
Norman will be supplying the raffle table and will be selling plants
at this meeting.
***Members may bring plants to sell at this meeting.
