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 both experts and knowledgeable growers to those who are beginners to orchid care and growing.

What we all have in common is a love for all things orchid 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 each 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.

      Coming in November:

Orchid Mounting!

Have you ever thought about adding mounted orchids to your collection? If you're like many, this thought has crossed your mind! Mounted orchids provide a space saving alternative for many growers. Plus, many orchids thrive when mounted. With this in mind, the November monthly meeting will feature a hands-on workshop with guests having the opportunity to learn about orchid mounting and to practice mounting an orchid. We are also providing an opportunity to purchase a plant and/or mount that can be used at the meeting! If you are interested in making a purchase, registration forms are due by October 31st. Please email PSOS Vice President, Erin Vasconcelles, if you'd like more information. Registration is not required to attend the meeting.
