about this event

And now, for a change of pace, OSSC is breaking with our usual "speaker presentation" format and instead will host an lively, interactive session where a team comprised of OSSC's best and most experienced growers will take questions from members of the audience. The names of our "all stars" will be shown here as we get confirmation of attendance from them. So start jotting  down all the orchid questions you may have and we'll see if we can stump our A-Team!

news in brief

  • A NOTE FROM THE OSSC SOUTHLAND DISPLAY COMMITTEE: [Submitted by OSSC 1st VP Carol Beule on July 30, 2014]. The OSSC Southland Display Committee has begun to meet and formulate ideas for the Show.  While things are in their infancy, when we know what help we might need this August/September, you will be sent an email asking for your time.  Until then, remember that we will need many people to help with the set up and take down at the Huntington, so please start grooming and cleaning your plants for their eventual display.  The small buds that are just beginning to develop now might be ready for the October show. There will be a quick lesson in how to prepare at the September meeting.  All healthy (no bugs) and blooming plants are welcome for the exhibit.
  • NEW MEMBER BENEFIT: [Submitted by OSSC Webmaster Ted Augustyn on March 2, 2014]. Starting this month, every new member and their sponsor will each receive a certificate good for one 1-gallon Cymbidium orchid, courtesy of Orchids by Art in North Hills, CA, which is owned and operated by OSSC member Art Mendoza. The society expresses sincere thanks to Art for this generous offer. This offer supercedes the prior offer from Rudvalis Orchids.
  • WE'VE GOT A NEW LOOK!: [Submitted by OSSC Webmaster Ted Augustyn on April 18, 2012] As of March 30, anyone visiting the OSSC Facebook page saw a new look, brought about by a new format standard introduced by Facebook. The new look features a beautiful, page-wide photo of a Cattleya taken by OSSC Member Charles B. Boco. Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/orchidssc . In a related development, OSSC now has over 200 "likes" on Facebook. If you haven't already done so, you can add to that number by clicking the "Like " button found to the right of this story.
