Meeting Dates

As the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves the Committee is monitoring updated advice from the State and Federal Governments.

As a result of their Social Distancing Guide and our Members being in the high risk demographic we have a duty of care for their safety and wellbeing.

Therefore, the Committee has decided to cancel all meetings and group activities until further notice.

We will make decisions for each following month as the situation evolves.

Please stay safe.

Dendrobium Lustrous x Vivid

Display Benches

Terrestrial Display Bench Epiphyte Display Bench

Members can bring in their orchids and display them on the benches at the meetings so that others may enjoy them.

We are not a judging society so orchids are not compared and rated against each other.  However we do award certificates for good culture.  To receive a certificate an orchid must be owned by the grower for a minimum of 3 years and should be grown well for that particular species or hybrid.

Linguella nana

Help Table

If you are having problems with growing a particular orchid, bring it along to the help table and our members will be happy to give their advice on how to best care for it.

If your orchid has an insect infestation, rust or viral disease please cover it to prevent it from contaminating other orchids benched at the meeting.
