CLUB NEWS

The Spring Orchid Fair was once again a resounding success!! Door takings were up again over last year and sale plants were all gone by lunch time on Saturday. More sales plants arrived on
Sunday and many of those were a sell out too. Great attendance
despite the dearth of parking which was even less this year.
The Casserole Night was another huge success with around 20 to 25 members attending with fine wining and dinning enjoyed by all.
Many thanks to all members who put themselves out to assist with the judging and displays. Setting up and dismantling were the same organised chaos as usual but I think we must be getting used to it as it all went w
ell.

**********************************************

The WJOS Facebook page has been going gangbusters recently as members seize the opportunity to share pictures of their orchids with others. You are most welcome to join us there.

A new member, Geoff was welcomed at the September meeting. We have had quite a number of new members in recent months and wish them a long, happy and educational time with the society. New members equals new ideas. Learning about

Paphiopedilim Culture Notes (OCTOBER/NOVEMBER)

by Trevor

This month is about getting our newly potted plants into full growth. The growths will need to mature in order to produce flowers next year. With the warmer weather, the fertiliser program can be increased to weekly or fortnightly at ¼ to ½ strength with a high nitrogen-based fertiliser to promote good development of the new growths.
In our repotting process we usually end up with plants being repotted into larger pots or divided into several pieces, so be mindful not to cram your plants together like sardines. They still need space between plants with good air movement. If we cram plants together, this provides a wonderful place for all sorts of bugs to hide and also restricts the air flow around plants. Good air movement around the plants is essential for good healthy plants and greatly reduces disease problems.


In respect to watering, we must ensure that our plants do not become completely dry, as we have a nice new mix which for the first couple of months will tend to dry out more quickly than the old mix we have just replaced. At this time of year I would at 7 day intervals unless the temperature goes above 32 degrees for three consecutive days, at which time I reduce the watering frequency to each 4 days.


It also an ideal time to see if that plant you admired from one of the growers has been divided and a piece may be available to purchase.
Remember, this is the ideal time of the year to reflect on your
cultural success and sharing your growing success with friends and club members. Good luck and good growing for the summer months ahead.
