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!


July 3 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 season.  Thanks!

Our July meeting is the first of two of our annual auctions (the other takes place at our December meeting).  These auctions are our main way to raise funds for the society to pay for speakers, shows and other expenses.  Look over your orchids and see if there are any you'd like to donate.  You can also donate orchid-related items.  Then come prepared to bid on new orchids for your collection!  Also as part of the fun, we all bring food to share at a potluck style meal before the auction starts.  So, join us for food and fun on Sunday, July 3!

There will be no 101 class in July.  Also, do not bring orchids for the judging table - all orchids brought will be auctioned off!  (Just kidding!)
