Co-hosted by the New Hampshire Orchid Society, Bedford Old Town Hall, 3 Meetinghouse Road, Bedford, NH
In conjunction with the monthly New Hampshire Orchid Society meeting, IPA is pleased to present its 7th Annual Speakers’ Day, “Focus On Phals”. This day-long event will include three presentations: Alan Koch, from Gold Country Orchids, on the new trend in breeding for Phalaenopsis intergenerics. Joining him will be Dotty Woodson, a Certified Nursery Professional & water resource specialist for Texas A&M, who is an expert on Pests & Diseases and how to effectively treat them. Carri Raven-Riemann of the orchidPhile, Past IPA President & current Regional Director, will update us on some of the cutting-edge breeding as seen at the Taiwan 2017 TIOS Show, including some exciting new directions from some of the smaller boutique hybridizers who are always thinking outside the box.
The day will also include reviewing the traditional New Hampshire OS show table, a roundtable discussion and a mini-auction of select plants. The Registration Fee of $15 for NON-NHOS members covers just the cost of morning refreshments and a light lunch. We invite all orchidists, IPA members & non-members alike, to join us for this very special Speakers’ Day. Vendors will be: Gold Country Orchids, the orchidPhile and Kelley’s Korner Orchid Supplies.
