Chinese Cymbidiums

Orchid Society of Minnesota

Saturday, October 15, 1 – 3 pm

Location: Bachman’s, Heritage Room, 6010 Lyndale Ave S., Minneapolis, MN

Our speaker is Dr. Kristen Uthus, owner of New World Orchids. She studied both plant and animal ecology and evolution at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and the Ohio State University (OSU). She then taught biology and ecology at several colleges including VCU, OSU, University of Michigan, and Eastern Michigan University. Now her full-time pursuit is orchids.

Asian Cymbidiums (Chinese Cymbidiums) are considered miniatures among Cymbidiums and are often collected as much for the foliage as for the flowers. Kristen will cover the cultural requirements of these unique terrestrial orchids.
