EPIPHYTE STUDY GROUP

The Epiphyte Study Group meet once a month, usually on the first Sunday following the monthly meeting.  The group usually meets at a member's shade house or at one of the commercial orchid growers.

Members are welcome to see for themselves how others grow their orchids and get the opportunity to ask questions.  At some of the meetings members can purchase Australian epiphytic orchids.  Often the group selects a particular orchid for discussion and members are encouraged to bring along their own specimen plants for discussion.
