. . . to the Central Illinois Orchid Society web page. We are a diverse group of people interested in growing and/or enjoying orchids. We welcome anyone to attend our meetings and events whether you have never grown an orchid or you are an experienced grower.

Our mission is to:

  1. Exchange orchid-related information among orchid hobbyists;
  2. Provide a forum for disseminating orchid-growing information through educational programs offered to its members and the public;
  3. Support local and global orchid conservation efforts;
  4. Enjoy the fellowship of others who share a fascination with orchids.

The next meeting is on May 13, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hessel Park Church.  Don White, owner of Anything Orchids from Frankfort IL, will talk about basic orchid care.  He encourages everyone to bring problem orchids for him to diagnose the problem and provide solution to the problem.  He will also bring some plants for sale.   If you have blooming orchids, please bring them for Show and Tell.

Below are the images from the 2019 Show and Sale.   More images are in the Gallery.
