Welcome to the website of the Tauranga Orchid Society based in Tauranga, New Zealand.
We hope you’ll find the site interesting and informative – we have an Events page with both local and national and international happenings, the About page carries information about our club and how to get in touch, while the Orchid Help page is designed to act as a Q&A session to help those having problems with plants.
Wise heads among club members know that there’s many a slip between having an orchid and growing it well. Sometimes problems can be remedied fairly easily and sometimes the plant is best sent to the compost bin! Even very experienced growers suffer plant losses so if you’ve done everything right there’s no need to feel guilty.
Problems and possible resolutions will be posted on Orchid Help as they come in. We have members growing all kinds of orchids – both with added heat and without – so please take the opportunity to tap into this wealth of experience.
Over time we will profile some of the orchids being grown locally by our members, plants with interesting stories to tell about their place of origin, their move into cultivation and what they’ve been up to since then.
Thank you for visiting and please come again!
