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 a featured speaker talks about an orchid topic (Genera, culture, etc); Orchids 101 for beginners, as well as plant show and tell 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!
December 7th Meeting - Come at 2:00pm!
We're starting a little earlier than usual this month! December is the 2nd orchid auction of the year and one of the main activities we use to help raise funds for the society. We wanted to have a little more time for eating and for the auction, so everything will be set up to start at 2. Bring finger foods to share and orchid items to auction off. However, do NOT bring orchids for the table since we won't have judging. Instead, the members with the most points received for this year's table judging will be announced during the meeting. Members will also be voting for the new officers for 2015. So - bring some food to share and something for the auction if you can, and plan on a enjoyable time!
There will be no Orchids 101 in December because of the auction.
