OSCOV

North East Melbourne Orchid Society Inc.

The major aim of NEMOS is to promote the enjoyment of growing orchids.

Meetings are held at the Marwal Centre, 9 - 11 Marwal Avenue, Balwyn North (Melways map 46, B3) at 7:30 pm on the 3rd Monday of each month.

NEXT MEETING: Monday 19 June 2017 - the Item of the Evening will be Murray Harding presenting The Humble kingianum.  The Culture Corner segment starting at 7:00pm will feature Alan Hope presenting Growing and Flowering Paphiopedilums. 

At the end of each meeting members and guests can meet over tea/coffee and snacks.

Guest Speakers for the evening are drawn from local, interstate and international experts, with topics covering different orchid genera, orchid culture and housing, orchid travels, judging and new developments in the world of orchids.

Culture Corner for the newer growers begins at 7:00pm. This session provides an introduction to orchids where members can seek help and advice regarding orchid culture, problem plants and other matters of interest to orchid growers.

A Sales Table is also available at most meetings at which members can buy orchids, and sell surplus orchids.

At each meeting there is a Showbench Competition for Novice, Intermediate and Open growers. Flowering plants are judged by the OSCOV judging panel and a plant commentary is often provided. For those who prefer not to compete there is also a non-competitive section.

THE NEMOS NEWS is an excellent newsletter produced by our Editor, Brian Milligan. It contains articles on orchids and their cultivation, matters of common interest and showbench competition results. It is mailed monthly to each member.

Club membership: Single $20.00 Family $24.00
