orchids we grow

Southern California orchid growers are blessed with (mostly) moderate temperatures throughout the year, allowing many orchids to be grown outdoors. In fact, fully 40% of OSSC members don't have a greenhouse! The photos on these pages are all examples of plants that have been grown in Southern California, both in and out of greenhouses, and come from the OSSC flickr group, which is open to all Southern California orchid enthusiasts. By default, the  "most interesting" photos are presented first. (Note: the degree of "interestingness" is determined by flickr's proprietary methodology.)


There are 212  photos in the OSSC flickr group.
