General Membership


Date:   Monday July 14, 2014

Time:     7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Location:     Harry P Leu Gardens   @  1920 N Forest Ave Orlando, FL 32803


July is our Annual CFOS Member Sale and Trade and it will be like a “picnic at Leu Gardens”. There is no speaker and no flower judging for this night.

Set up will be at 6 pm so come early to arrange your plants on the table that you would like and then you can browse/peak on other members plants for trade/swap/sell.

The 2 hours(7-9 PM) will be devoted to orchids swap/trade and/or sale with a maximum of 12 clean (no bugs/insects, no signs of virus/rots) orchids each member will be allowed including the ones you have traded ahead of time with some of our member (s).

If you are selling your orchid/s, please put a sticker of how much you would like to sell your plant/s. If your plant is not in bloom please provide a picture from your photo album from its previous blooming for every one to see what the blooms will look like.

To make it more orderly, each member has 1-2 minutes to go to the microphone/podium to read the names of the 12 orchids that he has in his/her list and assigned table (one table might have 2 people sharing to put their plants on it).

 It is a first come first serve basis so please do not be offended if somebody has beaten you to a certain plant/s you would like. For those with facebook and twitter if you arranged ahead of time with somebody prior to the meeting to swap/trade or sell plant/s please do not read this on the podium as this will offend the person that wants it (crossed out this from your list).

We would like this night to be a wonderful night for everybody to procure and share/sell some of his/her division/s so that he/she can buy some more plants from our future speakers.

Please do not forget to bring cash or check specially those member/s who don’t have any orchid/s to swap/trade/sell.  You can sell other plants besides orchids as long as they are included on the 12 plants per member meeting!!

    Good News! Francisco Miranda of Miranda Orchids will be our speaker on Monday May 14. Mr. Miranda is a world renowned taxonomist, but more important he knows where to find beautiful plants in Brazil and take outstanding photos of them….. He will be bringing lots of his beautiful Cattleya among other plants for sale as he specializes in Brazilian species….. come enjoy

  • It would be a good idea to include the names of those orchids that you show on your website.

  • I keep missing these shows but I will be at this one :D

  • Nice Blog…I love to read your posts.

  • To Whom it may concern,

    This may be of particular interest to the Central Florida Orchid Society members/followers. Please feel free to disseminate it among all your networks and interested parties.

    Volunteering places left on the MONITORING ORCHID POPULATIONS PROJECT – Alicante, Spain

    The Monitoring Orchid Populations in the Marina Region (South East Spain) Project invites applications to participate in the volunteering expedition to be held from 30 April-6 May 2012. The purpose of the expedition is monitoring the evolution of the orchid populations in the context of land use change (see http://www.tonibarber.com/orchid/index.htm for details).

    International applications are welcome. Interested parties should send an e-mail to orchidexpedition@gmail.com. The participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Applications will be considered until places are filled.

    This ecotour is also particularly interesting to undergraduate and graduate students, who can consider it for their abroad field trips or international coursework/experience. Dates are somehow flexible for groups, which should not exceed 10 people per group (contact us for details or specific needs).
