The Greater North Texas Orchid Society (GNTOS) is dedicated to the culture, protection,and appreciation of orchids all over the world. GNTOS brings together people interested in the culture and propagation of orchids, and also serves an educational function in disseminating information about orchids to the public.
We have regular monthly meetings (the first Sunday of every month) in which we have a featured speaker. There is also an orchid table show and plant raffles. Our meetings are located at North Haven Gardens, 7700 Northaven Rd., Dallas, TX 75230. More details and a map are located here.
Whether you are an expert grower or just got your first orchid, we welcome all to visit our monthly meetings and events!
August 2 meeting (3:15pm)
Alan Koch will be speaking in August on miniature and compact cattleyas. Alan owns and operates Gold Country Orchids where he specializes in these smaller cattleyas. He has moved five times as his orchid obsession has led to the need for more growing space. With the last move, he purchased 10 acres of land in Lincoln, California for his 250,000 orchids. He is recognized as an expert in the Brazilian Cattleya alliance and a trend setter in miniature cattleya breeding. He has held various posts as an AOS judge. After his talk, there will be our usual orchid raffle and table judging.
Orchids 101 will meet at 2:30 in the greenhouse.
