Daryl Venables

May - African Orchids
Daryl Venables, Tezula Plants

Daryl, a native South African, talked to us about African Orchids. His delightful program had beautiful images of the different climates and incredible variety of orchids that grow there, along with tips on mounting these epiphytic beauties.
    Courtney weaved his orchid tales for our April Virtual Show Table, using pictures of blooming orchids sent in by members. Here's a link to his presentation.

Orchid Potting Mixes

Potting Mixes

Coarse mix is a mixture of clay pebbles, large Orchiata bark, sponge rok and charcoal. It is a freely draining mix that is great for cattleyas and dendrobiums, $5 for a gallon bag. We also have a soilless mixture for phalaenopsis. This is a more water retentive mix that is half sponge rock and half Pro-Mix HP, $3 for a gallon bag or two for $5. Email us what you want and we'll bring it to the meeting. If you want large quantities, you can bring a 5 gallon bucket over to Sue and Terry's and we'll blend up a custom mix for you.
