Mom & the Horticultual Meeting
Just when I thought I knew EVERYTHING about growing orchid plants, my Mom and I attended the Orono Horticultural meeting where the guest speaker, Wayne Hingston spoke on choosing and successfully growing orchids. What a wealth of information on proper care for growing these wonderful plants. Wayne demonstrated the benefits of using appropriate media, watering and fertilizing techniques and the differences in the various orchid plants. The bonus for the evening was being with my Mom where she was presented with a red rose, the Orono Horticultural Society’s official flower, for being the Orono club’s longest standing member in attendance last night.
