Formerly Orchid Lovers Club of Spring Hill
Goals of The Club.
Our aim at Nature Coast Orchid Society is to give orchid lovers an opportunity to share orchid culture and care experience, while educating and entertaining in a social and practical way. The prime objective is to acquaint our members with the diversity of orchid species and encourage the acquisition of rare and endangered varieties for preservation and enjoyment of future generations.
Our next meeting will a Repotting Clinic on Saturday April 20th.
If you want to learn how to repot your orchid, or if you can help newer members learn how, please come to the meeting and bring ONE orchid to re-pot.
The society will provide Hicks #5 Potting Media, and some sphagnum, and some tags. Hicks #5 is a good general-purpose mix of bark, charcoal, coconut chips, etc., suitable for most epiphytic orchids.
Monthly meetings are held at the VFW Post 8681 at 18940 Drayton Street in Spring Hills. The Post is on the corner of Drayton Street and County Line Road, on the Pasco side.
We encourage anyone in the tri-county area around Spring Hill to come and visit one of our meetings. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm. You don't need a reservation, just show up at any meeting for a free visit. You will find the Nature Coast Orchid Society a wealth of information You may be an experienced grower or just have a curiosity about orchids, either way you will find the club to be fun, helpful, friendly and educational.
In addition to regular monthly meetings, with knowledgeable speakers, the Club sponsors tours of tri-county growers and over night travel to international shows, greenhouses and lectures. We also have a yearly orchid Festival, a Christmas Luncheon, an orchid Auction and an annual picnic.
