Orchid Growing

Category: Nature / Animals
Orchids are widely considered to be the most highly evolved of all flowering plants on the planet. It is estimated that there are 20 to 30 thousand different species of orchids out there, growing on every continent except Antarctica. Orchids are the world's neatest plants for several reasons. First, many orchid flowers are, simply put, stunning. They come in almost every color, shape, size, and many of them last for weeks if not months on the plant.

An orchid is a magnificent image of beauty and elegance, and choosing to grow your own orchid plants is a richly rewarding experience. The impression that orchids are hard to grow and maintain couldn't be more wrong. Taking care of orchid plants is an art that doesn't take too long to master.

The Heart O' Texas Orchid Society is an active member of the Austin Area Garden Council, The American Orchid Society, SouthWest Regional Orchid Growers Association (SWROGA) & Orchid Digest, with member representatives attending affiliation meetings and events.

Joining an orchid society brings you in contact with people from a wide range of backgrounds, with a common interest in orchids. Interests of our members vary widely. Some study the botanical aspects of the more than 35,000 species. Some are serious hybridizers, while others study the various trends of hybridization. Some grow "just for fun", while others grow one or two orchids & simply love looking at a wide array of plants.

Membership in this society is open to anyone interested in growing orchids, with a willingness to exhibit and to further the general interest purposes under consideration by the society to perform literary or committee duties.

Annual dues are $30.00 per individual ($2.00/month prorated after January 31st for new members), $45.00 for two at the same address. You will be given our membership directory with a list of members, the current slate of officers and committee chairpersons and the Society By-Laws. If dues are paid early for the following year you save $5.
