   Hello to all and welcome Fall!  Yes it's already fall season and I am sure the temperatures are going to start to remind us of the season!

   Had to do a lot of moving of plants as the sun has moved in direction ... beware of SUNBURN on your plants ... it happens very fast! With this drier weather, it is easy for our orchids to burn even though the temperatures are moderating.

    This October workshop will be another reward for being a member!  We will be doing a workshop on the Formosae type dendrobiums. These are evergreen, upright, With long lasting blooms of snowy white, with orange lips. I had brought one in several times and will try to bring one in ... in bloom. The Society will provide a plant, pot, and mix and you will be potting your own plant. These plants are a few years from blooming, but well worth the wait.

    Bring in some newspaper to set down under your plant.

   Remember to bring in your plants for show table and you might win a ribbon for your special plant!

   See you on the 20th!  Dave
