Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society!

Our 2017 show, A Galaxy of Orchids, will be held January 20, 21, and 22, 2017. No doubt it will be a star-studded event!

Our 2016 show, An Orchid Masquerade, was an elegant celebration of orchids. We had full houses in spite of tornado warnings and cold squalls blowing through. Many thanks to our great vendors, to all the volunteers from FLOS, to the City of Fort Lauderdale, and to all our visitors who came and enjoyed the show.


September 12, 7:30 PM meeting will feature Thanh Nguyen from Spring Water Orchids

October 10 is our auction. Bidding starts at 7:00; come early to register and check out the 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
  • parties!

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.
