May Meeting

Please join us for our next meeting on Saturday May 9.  Thomas Voytilla from the Orchid House will be speaking on growing orchids semi-hydroponically. Lunch at noon and meeting at 1PM.

Thomas will be selling plants, so no farmers market this month.

Thomas Voytilla has been raising orchids since 1998.  Soon after he discovered his passion for them, he learned of the semi-hydroponic growing method.  He has now refined this growing technique with experience to bring its advantages and ease to all orchid lovers, both novice and experienced.

He and his wife live in rural southern Virginia and have spent the last several years bringing their business to the public.  They raise their orchids from flask/plugs and now have a large variety of mature plants well-established in the semi-hydroponic system.

His presentation details his experience with the semi-hydroponic growing method, with supporting pictures of root growth across the different genre and specimen size plants.  He has plants and supplies available for sale as well.

  1. I noticed a photo on Flickr from the Piedmont Orchid Show that was taken on March 18, 2012. The plant is a schombolaelia Cinnamon Crisp. I would very much like to know to whom the plant belongs and how to get one of my own. Can you help me? Thanks!

  2. Does the show have an admission fee? If so, why doesn’t the website mention this????? Also, does UNCC charge for parking? Why isn’t there a phone number to call listed on the show website?
