Welcome to the internet home of
Prairie State Orchid Society
     

Centered around Springfield, Illinois, we are a group of orchid lovers who meet regularly to discuss, enjoy, learn about and indulge our passion for orchids. Our members include some experts and knowledgeable growers to those who are beginners to orchid care and growing

What we all have in common is a love for these beautiful plants and a desire to share our enthusiasm.

We invite you to join us at our monthly meetings which are held on the third Friday of the month (7 pm) . Meetings are held at the Hampton Inn, 2300 Chuckwagon Drive, Springfield, IL in the Conference Room. Our annual February show and sale is held at Springfield's Washington Park Botanical Garden in Springfield.

February Annual Show & Sale

     The annual Prairie State Orchid Society Show & Sale is now history with another successful show and sale. Typical of the annual shows, this year was another cold and snowy weekend with a blizzard beginning early on Sunday morning.


PSOS orchid sale was held on Saturday from Noon to 4 PM. The doors for the show and sale were opened again on Sunday from Noon to 3 PM.

A large selection of sale plants with assorted bloom colors and foliage types made selection for visitors and members a difficult choice when purchasing plants.

 

 


Members of the PSOS Show

PSOS Members exhibited their blooming orchids for a judged show which was held before open doors to the public on Saturday, Feb. 13. Society members vote on Best in Show for the coveted Best of Show orchid. This years winner was Mitzi Vasconcelles with her nobile dendobioum. See the photo of the winning BEST OF SHOW plant by clicking here.

Here are some blooming orchids which were on display in the conservatory.

A tropical climate in the warm and humid conservatory added to the treat of the colorful display.
