Fascination of Orchids Show & Sale
2016 Fall Orchid Show Seminars / Workshops
FREE Admission to the Public for all Events
compliments of: South Coast Plaza & Fascination of Orchids, Inc.

There isn't any Registration, but Seating is Limited

Seminars and Workshops at the 2016 Fascination of Orchids Show & Sale have been designed to share the knowledge of a group of long time local orchid growers with the public. Much of the orchid information that is available has been written in locations outside of Coastal Southern California where growing conditions are often different. We strive in our seminars and workshops to present useful information from knowledgeable people who want to share their tips and techniques which have worked for them. Each session will be followed by a question and answer period with open discussions.
