to the internet home of
Prairie State Orchid Society
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
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
