Anyone who has been growing orchids for a few years has killed a bunch! It’s part of the process of figuring out how to grow them. It can help to have someone tell you what you are doing right and wrong.
Former Hawaii Orchid Society President, Larry Kuekes, will do just that. Instead of just a list of do’s and don’ts, Larry will talk about how orchids grow in nature and how that helps you understand the right way to grow them.
Larry started growing orchids on his windowsills in Connecticut in 1984, where he grew mostly cool and intermediate growing orchids. In 2010, he retired and moved to Hilo, where he started a small but diverse collection of mostly warm-growing orchids in a shade house near sea level. Although he grows some hybrids, he is a self-described “species nut”.
Even if you are an experienced grower, you’ll be entertained by the songs and videos in Larry’s multi-media presentation. Don’t miss it!
