Coming up is the
2009 Orchid Show
April 17-19

The show will be held at the Gallatin Valley Mall, in Bozeman, MT,
in front of JC Penney, on

Friday    April 17, noon-9pm
Saturday April 18, 10am-7pm
Sunday   April 19, 11am-4pm

We are again happy to announce that judges from the American Orchid Society are coming to our show to evaluate the plant and art entries.

On Friday, at 2pm, Jim Huffman from Jolah Orchids in --- will teach us about growing orchids in the very dry conditions of our homes.

On Saturday, at 2pm, Brenda Oviatt from Botanica, Inc. in Missoula will be talking about how to grow orchids directly on bark.

And on Sunday, at 2pm, Charlie Spinelli from Spinelli Orchids in Amsterdam will explain how to  repot orchids.

New this year: What's really special this year is that we are going to have a bench show. This means that the orchids shown will be organized according to their similarities, and it will make it very easy to compare them with one another. This should help us to understand why some plants get ribbons and others don't.
Don't miss our
show raffle!
