Welcome to the internet home of
Prairie State Orchid Society

Centered around Springfield, Illinois, we are a group of orchid lovers who meet regularly to discuss, enjoy, learn about and indulge our passion for orchids. Our members include some experts and knowledgeable growers to those who are beginners to orchid care and growing

What we all have in common is a love for these beautiful plants and a desire to share our enthusiasm.

We invite you to join us at our monthly meetings which are held on the third Friday of the month (7 pm) . Meetings are held at the Hampton Inn, 2300 Chuckwagon Drive, Springfield, IL in the Conference Room. Our annual February show and sale is held at Springfield's Washington Park Botanical Garden in Springfield.


Salesroom offers quite a selection.


PSOS orchid sale will be held on Saturday from Noon to 4 PM. The doors for the show and sale will open again on Sunday from Noon to 3 PM.

A large selection of sale plants with assorted bloom colors interested in purchasing plants.



Members of the PSOS Show

Typically you will see an exhibit of PSOS members exhibiting their orchids for public display and judging of awards by orchid judges.

Here are some blooming orchids which were on display in the conservatory at the 2016 PSOS Show.

A tropical climate in the warm and humid conservatory adds to the treat of the colorful display.
