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
  • learning how other members grow orchids at Keiki Club meetings
  • 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.
