Orchid growing is our hobby, we are happy to share our photo's of our collection, our orchids are mostly Cattlayas, Phalaenopsis, Dendrobiums, many are grown in an inorganic medium such as perlite, hydroponic clay pebbles using a passive hydroponic system.
We bought our first orchid about 8 years ago. they stayed green and grew a bit, never really flowered until we moved to Rockhampton, a different enviroment and we started to get flowers.
We joined the Rockhampton Orchid Society and have continued to learn from other members, many who have been growing orchids for many years.
Our orchids are growing in numbers and we are still learning and there is a lot of satisfaction when you see them in flower, so all in all a great hobby.
Our local orchid society is the Rockhampton Orchid Society Inc.
Meetings are held in the 4th Tuesday of each month, except for December.
Meetings are held in St. Stephens Hall, Burnett St, Nth Rockhampton.
Starting at 7:30pm
