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 2016 meetings, we’ve invited Rob Shepard, owner of Sapphire Dragon Orchids and Dr. Yin-Tung Wang, Consultant & Adjunct Professor at Texas A&M University. 

Rob will bring us all up to speed on his coerulea-focused breeding program in his quest for a true blue Phalaenopsis. 

Carri Raven-Riemann will finish the morning session by bringing everyone up to speed on the newest directions in breeding seen at the recent 2016 Taiwan International Orchid Show and several nurseries in Taiwan.

Dr. Wang will share invaluable culture information with an eye to helping us achieve the best from our Phalaenopsis.  

As always, Daryl Yerdon, owner of Kelley's Korner Orchid Supply will be the vendor for all your orchid supply needs.

Registration deadline is September 3, 2016.
