Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale Orchid Society!


  • September 11th : Roy Tokunaga  –  Cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. 
  • October 9th: Annual Auction  –  The auction is a great time to expand your collection and help out the society. There will be wide variety of orchids and orchid related items auctioned off, great deals and a lot of fun.  Do you have an orchid that you would like to donate? Speak to a member of the board at a meeting and they will tell you what you need to do. 
  • November 11: Ramble! Members can log in at our membership site to sign up and pay for it online
  • November 13: ShowTime! Learn how to bring home prestigious AOS awards by preparing your plants for judging. Learn how exhibits at our show are judged so you can help visitors enjoy it more! 
  • December 10: Holiday Party – dancing, orchids, dining, orchids, and friends… always a great night. 

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.
