Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society!
Our 2016 show, An Orchid Masquerade, is coming in January. Click here for show information.
We have lots planned for the fall too!
We are celebrating Broward County’s 100th anniversary by giving away 100 Encyclia tampensis! Join us on Riverwalk on September 6 for this fun event.
Carol DeBiase is our September 14 speaker, with a talk on Oncidiums.
Our October auction is another highlight of the fall orchid season in South Florida. Join us on October 12 for a chance to buy some fabulous plants!
If you recently discovered the Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society, please come to a meeting as our guest and then consider joining. We are a fun group that enjoy:
- meeting to learn from a presentation, munch on snacks, look at members’ plants, and participate in a raffle
- checking out books from our library
- traveling together to visit orchid nurseries or other members’ homes on our famous rambles
- hosting our annual Fort Lauderdale Orchid Show
- reading our newsletter
You’ll find enjoyment and useful information whether you are brand new to growing orchids or have many years of experience. Come as a guest – no obligation – and see how you like it! The Internet is awash in data but there’s nothing like finding out what works and what doesn’t work from a neighbor or friend.
The FLOS Newsletters are all online! You can find the archived ones from 2008 on the Newsletter Archives page.
Opportunities To Get Involved
To get the most out of your membership, get involved! More involvement leads to a better society. You will learn more about orchids and have more fun too!
We are looking for involvement on our special project or you can check out on going projects on our Opportunities Page.
2015 Special Project: Stranahan Park orchid “planting”
FLOS has been invited by the Woman’s Club of Fort Lauderdale to help populate Stranahan Park with orchids. We will be naturalizing orchids in this beautiful garden in front of the Main Library downtown.
The Woman’s Club is turning the park into a botanical garden. Those of us who have toured the park know they need help. We are asking members who would like to donate an orchid or would like to help install orchids to contact Scott Peplin at email@example.com.
If you need to clear some space in your growing area, this is a great way to do so! Drop Scott a note.
