The Palomr Orchid Society is delighted to welcome Aurthur Pinkers as speaker for its July 11 meeting to be held at the Carlsbad Woman's Club, 3320 Monroe Street. Visitors are always welcome!
Arthur's talk is entitled, "Miltoniopsis, Pansies of the Orchid World: Where they Started and Where We Are Now." The Genus Miltoniopsis consists of six species native to Costa Rica, Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador and Columbia. They are cool to intermediate growers and like moist conditions. Hybridizers have produced many magnificent, very colorful hybrids for orchid hobbyists and the general consumer. For more information, go to www.palomarorchid.org.
