We hold general meetings on the fourth Wednesday each month, February to November, at the Burnside Community Centre, 401 Greenhill Rd, Tusmore, SA.
Visitors are most welcome at our meetings and show and we offer lots of advice to help anybody to grow some very rewarding plants.
The doors open at 7 pm and the beginners' class (all welcome!) starts at 7:15 with the meeting proper starting at 8pm.
The beginners' class introduces those who are new to the club to various aspects of propagating and cultivating cymbidiums. Information is provided relating to a range of topics from the practical- repotting, potting mediums and fertilising regimes- to the academic- cloning and diploids, tetraploid and triploids.
During the extensive flowering season growers compete in the monthly club competition, which is judged by our panel of judges. Winning plants are announced and displayed at the end of the meeting.
Monthly raffles and door prizes as well as a trading table selling pots, fertilizers etc and an occasional plant trading table provide the opportunity to extend members' plant collections.
Guest speakers, often from interstate, inform members about current trends in cymbidium cultivation and propagation.
A 'Grower of the month', a club member, highlights successful growing strategies
Practical workshops on repotting, decanting from flasks. etc are always popular.
