In conjunction with the monthly New Hampshire Orchid Society meeting, the International Phalaenopsis Alliance (IPA) is pleased to present its 6th Annual Speakers’ Day, Focusing on Phalaenopsis.

This day-long event will include three presentations:

Alan Koch, from Gold Country Orchids, will speak on the new trend in breeding for Phalaenopsis intergenerics. 

Joining him will be Dotty Woodson, Certified Nursery Professional and Water Resource Specialist for Texas A&M University. She  is an expert on orchid pests and diseases and will discuss how to effectively treat them in all types of orchids. 

]Carri Raven-Riemann of the orchidPhile, past IPA President and current Regional Director, will update us on some of the cutting-edge breeding as seen at the Taiwan 2017 TIOS Show, including some exciting new directions from some of the smaller boutique hybridizers who are always thinking outside the box.

As always, Daryl Yerdon, owner of Kelley's Korner Orchid Supply will be the vendor for all your orchid supply needs.
