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!
May 1 meeting (3pm)
Remember to park in the west parking lot of North Haven Gardens when you arrive for a GNTOS meeting. The Gardens would like to keep the other parking open for their customers, especially during the busy Spring season. Thanks!
