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!
October 2 meeting
The October program will be presented by Peter Lin of Big Leaf Orchids in Southlake TX. His topic will be "Growing Novelty Phalaenopsis". In case you're wondering, novelty phals include flowers that are fragrant, waxy and multicolored. Originally from Taiwan, Peter has been growing orchids for over 25 years, since he was 10. He makes frequent trips to Taiwan to see the latest developments in growing and hybridizing. Peter has made almost 300 crosses, has registered over 100 hybrids and has received many American Orchid Society awards, including two Award of Quality.
Orchids 101 will be held at 2:30 PM in the greenhouse with Lorna Kissling leading the discussion on when and how to bring orchids inside for the winter.
Our next orchid show has been scheduled for March 2017. Click here for more details as they become available!
