Many people believe that to successfully grow and bloom orchids you need special equipment or skills that most of us don’t have. This course will debunk that myth and give participants the basic, essential skills necessary to enjoy this hobby. The instructor, Ed Cott, intends to help participants understand what differentiates an orchid from other flowers and what it is about orchids that can lead to the obsession known as “Orchid Fever”. Then it’s on to considering the vast diversity in the orchid family and study of orchid culture. A “hands-on” workshop will help participants learn how to re-pot an orchid.

Instructor: Ed Cott
