This Month's Meeting

Windward Orchid Society's next MEMBERSHIP MEETING is scheduled for Wednesday, October 5th at 7:30 p.m. in the King Intermediate School Cafeteria.

   President's Message

Aloha everyone!

I can’t believe it’s October already.  We have had plenty of rain, and its time for the orchids to get a chance to dry out – but not likely since we are coming into the rainy season!  I have been very concerned that some of my orchids are getting water logged, but so far they all seem to be doing o.k. in spite of the weather.

October starts the race to the Holidays, Halloween; Auction Night in November; Thanksgiving; our Christmas Banquet; New Years and the Calendar turns to 2017!  

We will need to really, really, really, (yes, really) get serious about our Spring Show.  It sounds cliché – but March 2017 will be here before we know it!   PLEASE, PLEASE plan on volunteering in any way you can for the Spring Show.  We will need all kinds of help especially if we remain at Kokokahi – we’ll have to fine tune from last Show OR if we move it to the cafeteria – we will have a whole new set of logistics!  So Help, Help and Help!!! 

Stay Dry – Keep Calm and Repot On -

  - Sheron


The October Orchid Lecture is brought to you by our own Sheron Harwood.

 I have Media and I have Pots and I know how to use Them!

Otherwise known as: “Everything you wanted to know about Media and Potting …..but were too shy to ask!”

Come to the October 5th meeting to fill-in the blanks in your potting knowledge:

Which media do I use?  Which type of Pot – Clay or Plastic? I’ve heard No media is o.k., really? Really!

What about mounting on a piece of Hapu or driftwood?

Then there are Baskets, Help!!

How do I know which Orchid likes what type of media?

There are so many choices, which is best?

I am so confused.  Yes, you are! Hopefully this lecture will clear it all up and give you the freedom to not worry and just enjoy your orchids!
