In conjunction with the monthly New Hampshire Orchid Society meeting, the International Phalaenopsis Alliance (IPA) is pleased to present a great Speakers’ Day, Focusing on Phalaenopsis.

For our 2015 meetings, we’ve invited Norman Fang of Norman’s Orchids to present Part II of Moss Growing Culture in the afternoon session. Part I was extremely well received four years ago, and Norman will be covering in greater detail the secrets to successful moss growing.

Our first speaker will be Tom Mirenda, orchid collection specialist at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, who will cover Phal. species in situ and how to grow them successfully in cultivation. 

Carri Raven-Riemann will finish the morning session by bringing everyone up to speed on the newest directions in breeding seen at the recent 2015 Taiwan International Orchid Show and several nurseries in Taiwan.

Registration deadline is August 30, 2015.
