Q. Are there any classes offered on orchid growing?
PHS does not offer classes on orchid growing, at this time, but we have lots of great information on orchids here in our library.
The library staff put together a really nifty online guide on orchids:
This guide lists books from our library that you can borrow, since you are a member. The library is located here at PHS headquarters at 20th and Arch in downtown Philadelphia. Click on the "website" tab for links to reliable online infomation as well as local orchid societies. These societies are great ways to learn about orchid care. Longwood has offered orchid care courses in the past, so you may want to check with Longwood to see if they will offer an upcoming class.
And finally, look at the American Orchid Society's Orchid Basics section of the AOS website.
