2023 Orchid Show Presentations

While you are at the Orchid Show why not drop in to one of the Educational sessions happening Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 and 2:00.  Learn from folks who successfully grow orchids from all over the world in homes in Manitoba.

Ever wonder why one orchid gets an award, and another is passed over by the judges? Terry Kennedy is our Head Judge and this year and is well qualified to teach what the judges are looking for, and information about the wide world of orchid breeding and conservation.

Feel free to ask questions of any of our MOS members. Better yet – join the Manitoba Orchid Society and/or the Native Orchid Conservation Inc. and ask your questions every month at member meetings. The wide world of orchids is a great place to spend your time!
