Baton Rouge Orchid Society 2024 Show and Sale

"A Feast of Orchids"

The 2024 BROS Orchd Show and Sale is in the books and it was a very successful show this year.  Even with the hurricane in Houston, two of our vendors were able to attend even though they had power outages and other issues we in Baton Rouge are way to familiar with.  We hope they recover quickly.

We had approximate 700 visitors this year to see the show and we had several visitors to the monthlyt meeting from attending the show.  I want to thank all BROS members who participated from donating dishes for the judges dinner and Saturday and Sunday lunches, to the members who donated plants and time to setup the exhibit. 

BROS won the AOS Trophy for Best Exhibit in the show and we presented it to David Coco the show chair this year.  Members also won 11 Blue Ribbons and many Red and White's.  Also, severa members won best flower or best grown awards. It won't be long until it's time to start preparing for next year so maintain your orchids and look to exhibit them next year.

All my Best,

Jim Morrison, President

BROS August Meeting

BROS August meetings will be a video on the care of Oncidium orchids (also known as Dancing Ladies) which can be a challenge in Louisiana.   Please be sure to have your questions ready for the BROS experienced growers.

Red Stick Orchid Growers 

This version of the group invites all members and non members to attend during the day at the Goodwood pubic Library.  The meetings are held on the fourth (4th) Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. and cover a wide variety of information about Orchids.  There is no cost to join so come and learn.

Some of our Favorite Orchids.

Growing Orchids can be very rewarding. These are my two favorite cattleya orchids.  In fact, a local artist used the top photo to paint the image on the hood pad of my Corvette. 

I joined BROS in 2016 and knew nothing about orchids.  I found that with some orchid research and patience I was able to grow and bloom these plants in Baton Rouge.  Must admit I lost my fair share of plants along the educational path but when you finally put the cultural pieces together it can be very rewarding.  Jim Morrison BROS.
