Alan Koch

November - Judging Orchids on the Show Table
Alan Koch, Gold Country Orchids

Alan teamed up with Courtney to do an informal judging of our Show Table, talking about the plants, their culture and evaluating whether they would be eligible for AOS awards. They talked about ribbon vs. AOS judging, the judging process and the different types of AOS awards. It was fun and insightful, and several of the show table plants likely would have earned AOS awards.

Coarse mix is a mixture of clay pebbles, large Orchiata bark, sponge rok and charcoal. It is a freely draining mix that is great for cattleyas and dendrobiums. We also have a soilless mixture for phalaenopsis. This is a more water retentive mix that is half sponge rock and half Pro-Mix HP. Potting supplies available for a small donation. Email us what you want and we'll bring it to the meeting.
