Orchid Society of Greater St. Louis
Calendar 2021

Members are encouraged to bring their flowering Orchids for display on the show table at our regular meetings. The guest speaker or an AOS judge if present will discuss the culture of the plants on display and we'll also ask about the growing techniques imployed by the exhibitors.

Many of our speakers are also Orchid growers and bring plants to sell. So come early to get a first pick of these choice plants.

Please check this calendar often as meeting times, rooms and places can change. Topics are tentative and subject to change.
