Synda has been growing orchids for nearly 20 years. She grows many genera, but her favorite is Dendrobium, which she has a knack for and can get to bloom. Synda entered the AOS judging program four years ago. Recently, Synda was a judge at the World Orchid Congress in Ecuador. She is hoping to be fully accredited in July 2019. 

Please bring your notebook and questions to this presentation. There will be excellent tips shared and you will want to write them down.

In addition to our featured program, we will also have the good fortune to have two past presidents of the IOS, Barry Lubin and Loren Pollock, serving fresh brewed coffee and expresso drinks. Such a treat to have them doing this for us. Barry roasts his own coffee beans. This is a special treat you will not want to miss if you enjoy coffee.  Please bring your own, home-made treats share with the membership.
