Come join the friendliest orchid society in town!

  • Our monthly meetings feature an invited speaker who discusses a species group or a topic related to the care, cultivation and conservation of species orchids;
  • This is followed by a Show-and-Tell session of blooming orchid species brought in by COS members, who discuss their orchid's natural habitat and successful culture in South Florida;
  • We also have a lively orchid raffle at each meeting, and a silent auction table where members can obtain high-quality species at a terrific price.
