Monthly Meeting - Growing Paphs and Phrags in the Home

Mike Badia is the Vice President of the Massachusetts Orchid Society and will discuss growing Slipper Orchids in the home. Mike's experience is extensive with these charming species and hybrids. 

Mike was first exposed to orchids in 1982 and was immediately hooked. He grows his orchids on windowsills, tiered LED light carts and more recently a basement grow room with LED lights.  He grows a variety of orchids but tends to favor Paphs, Phrags and Catts. Mike's Paph. insigne ‘Harefield Hall’ took the Jim Campbell Memorial Trophy for Best Cypripedium Alliance at our 2022 New Hampshire Orchid Society Show and we are lucky to have him tell us how to grow these in the home.

Please have your plants on the show table by 11 a.m.


Lunch is potluck so please consider bringing a dish to share.
