December Monthly Meeting

Thursday, December 13, 2016 - 7:30 pm

Greater Philadelphia Orchid Society Meeting 
Cathedral Village, Philadelphia

Topic: Paphiopedilum micranthum – First Generation Hybrids

Speaker: Paul Sheetz

The December presentation by our president, Paul Sheetz will be on first generation hybrids of Paphiopedilum micranthum. We will look at hybrids from Paph. Charlandzegary to Paph. Tanja Pinkepank and everything in between. Paph. micranthum was introduced to Western cultivation in the early 1980’s from China. The original description was from an immature dried specimen, basically describing how small the flower was, hence, micranthum. But the flower can be sizable, especially the pouch.

Reminder: This meeting is our traditional holiday meeting which we celebrate by indulging in the delicious goodies you bring.
