Presidents message .....


      Happy Spring!  Yes, I think Spring is finally here .... To stay!
Along with the spring things come the occasional "bug" and I most certainly had it for the last month. Sorry for the absence from the last meeting, but we will resume with the program this month!
  The watering restrictions will hopefully be a thing of the past and we will be back into our rainy season. That will be a relief for sure as all these plants are still recovering from the past freezes this spring.
  There are a lot of orchids blooming now  and the phalaenopsis seem to be going nuts, guess because it was so cold earlier! Your nobile dendrobiums are blooming and will be starting to put out growths as well as  "ki ki"s try and move these to a shadier location to prolong their blooms!
  Enjoy watching as new growths develop and try and keep up  with repotting! 
  Don't forget your problem container and also your blooming plants for the show table!   


See you all on the 16th of April, Dave
