Date   
Just a reminder that we are not meeting tomorrow.

  I don't suppose anyone needs it since everything is cancelled.

On a happier note: I needed some stamps and found a new collection at the USPS...

Re: Orchid of the Day

Joe Volpe
 

Hello Mike and Bea. Long time no see or hear from you but as these terrible times pass perhaps we can meet soon after. 

Was so glad to read your email and see the pics of one of my offspring. 
She looks good and healthy as far as I can see, you’re doing a great job, and color of plant is a perfect green. It is a happy plant. You will be happy to know not a thing is wrong with having one pseudo bulb bloom ahead of the other. The second sheaf is soon to follow and should produce the same size flowers. This seems to be the norm with her and I too have had blooms come without a sheaf. Just a note and this pertains to most of my plants.  If a sheaf appears on a younger or smaller pseudobulb I pinch it off, I know ouch, to give more energy to the mother plant. 
If I can manage to send pics of my Nancy Off with this note you will see almost an exact duplicate of your plant. She also is fragrant and is sitting currently in my kitchen where we spend most of our time to enjoy her. The first set of flowers have been out for about 2 weeks. 
Also, I’m sure, along with others in the club we would like to hear of other issues you may have with some other plants. We can all help each other along the way. 
Regards, Nancy
Just a note to the club’s secretary. I’m answering on Joe’s site and would love to get my name and email on your list.

Hi,  Since we are able to meet I will try to get some answers to some questions that I have with my orchids.  I have not sent out to the group before, don't know how, so I am trying to hitch onto the last group email I received. I hope someone has an answer or comment to the three pictures I will attach.
Some history:  I obtained the plant at a silent auction in Feb., 2019.  The plant is Cattleya Nancy Off 'Linwood".  It was donated by Nancy Volpe, so you know it was a well grown plant.  It went on to bloom for me in May, 2019 and a single pseudobulb produced two very large white flowers.  I now have, for the first time ever, two pseudobulbs in bud.  My question is that the two are so different.  As you will see the bud sheath on the left is large, and what I would call traditional.  The second bud is not in a sheath, appears farther along and the pseudobulb and leaf are considerable smaller than most of the other leaves.  Should I expect smaller blooms?  Is this a good thing happening or is the plant unhappy?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
If this works out I have some other plants with issues that could be shown if there is an interest.

Orchid Space

Michael Jacob
 

FYI


Hello All
I live in Turnersville. I’m a hybridizer and I’m looking for some greenhouse space to rent or trade orchid services for. At the moment I have Paphiopedilum seedlings I need space for. I might be able to keep them on a 5 shelf metal stand (48”x18”x72”). If anyone has or knows someone who might have some space please let me know.
Thanks,
Fred Allen

April POS Meeting

Marie Hageman
 

I regret to inform everyone that I have to cancel the April POS Meeting.

In light of all the Virus-related-goings-on, Cadbury has instituted these restrictions – "No visitors including vendors, etc., at all. There should not be any meetings here until further notice."

This may put our Annual May Auction in jeopardy, as well.

I will pass along any information as soon as I get it.

Hopefully, we can rebook Bayard for a later date, and everyone stays well. 
Marie

Sorry I won’t be able to make the dinner or meeting as I’m still recovering from back surgery that I’ve been dealing with. Enjoy the speaker and delicious dinner. Jeanne

Hello All,
As part of his speaker’s fees, Kim requires us to provide his dinner.

So, we are going to try something new. (I can’t take credit for this idea. I learned of it when I spoke at Phila. Mensa Society. It works very well for them, for several reasons, so let’s see how it works for POS.) It's a good way to learn more from, and get to know the speaker better.

We are inviting all members to join our speaker for a Dutch-treat dinner prior to the meeting. We have found that, for our Holiday Party, the Ruby Buffet works for many reasons. Not the least of which is, it’s close, and rush-hour Cherry Hill traffic is a nightmare.

Also, the wide variety of offerings (approx. 100) guarantees all dietary-restrictions and preferences are accommodated. (Chinese, American, Italian, and Japanese food, and seafood, as well as sushi, vegetarian food, fruits, deserts and ice creams are all available.)

Finally, service is fast and it’s reasonably-priced. No doubt, the reasons for the positive feedback from our members on this choice.

We should meet at 5, in the lobby, to have ample time for an unrushed meal, since we need to arrive at Cadbury by 6:30, in time to set up our plants on the show table.

Please RSVP to my email address, so I can make the reservation.  mdhageman1@...

Please bring cash to cover your own meal, tax, and tip, (approx. $21.00).

See you there,
Marie

Our presenter will be Kim Feddersen with, Cymbidiums: an overview of the more important species, hybrid types and cultural requirements.

Thank you again for the generous donation.”
