Our September 2019 meeting topic was on Neofinetia Falcata, or Fukiran (富貴蘭) as Japanese would call it. Mr. Leland Nakai was the speaker, and we got to see how he creates the mount of long sphagnum moss.
These are the materials from the July 2019 lecture at the meeting, on building greenhouse using EZ Corner, by Mel W, Calvin A, and the rep from EZ Corner. Unless you are the lucky one to have a big tree in your back yard under which you can grow the orchids like in nature, it'd be nice to have a green house so the plants don't burn in the sun. There are different ways to make it, and here is just one of the ideas.
We had very interesting lecture by Mr. Ralph Nakama on Tillandsia. Tillandsia by themselves are enjoyable but they also complements to orchids. Lots of ideas! Remember to use the right glue to mount them, as Ralph said.
