What’s New?


•  COVID-19 outbreak. The Ottawa Orchid Society is closely monitoring the COVID-19 virus pandemic. The OOS is always concerned about our members’ safety and well-being and we will continue to follow the advice of the Ottawa Health Unit. https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/index.aspx


•  Society Meetings. Unfortunately we are not able to have our normal in-person meetings during the pandemic. Instead, we will be arranging “virtual meetings” and “virtual show tables” for Society members using the Internet. Please click here for more information. From time to time we will also be arranging group orders of plants and supplies for members. Details of meetings and group orders will be announced in Spike.


•  Orchid Show. Regretfully we were forced to cancel the 2020 Orchidophilia Orchid Show (April 25-26) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your understanding.


•  We have listed all the winning entries at the 2019 Show for Best in Class, Alliance Awards and Special Awards as well as all the Ribbon winners. We have now included photos of almost all the entries - take a look here!


•  Please click here to see an amazing time-lapse video of  Phalaenopsis flowers opening.


• The images you see in the box to the left are items recently posted on our Facebook page. The list updates every day, so it always shows the latest posts. Some of these are updates about our Society and some of them are links to other organizations in  the orchid world. If you click on any of these images you will be connected to the corresponding page in Facebook.
