Have you potted all the plants that need it? Do you have more now that you did when you started? Well, that is the reason for the plant sale, or swap if you prefer. Bring any plants that you would like to swap or sell to the September meeting. There will be many surprises and you have no idea what new plants or plant paraphernalia will be there to add to your collection.
Start setting the extras and the ones you want to share aside so you remember to bring them all to the meeting. When you take them out in the early summer, your space is full, then they multiply when you pot, leaving no space for new plants unless you find a new home for the extras.
Also, there will be plants for sale for a set price, not auction, from Kalapana and Carmella Orchids and we will need to sell all of these at the meeting. Between these two vendors there should be some really nice plants from which to choose. We will be providing homes for the homeless---plants, so come and take your pick.
The meeting will be September 14 . Come early so that you can get your plants or other plant or orchid related items labeled and ready for sale. You may come in as early as 1:30 pm to prepare.
