Join us and discover the enjoyment of Growing Orchids!



The Batavia Orchid Society (BOS) welcomes all orchid enthusiasts. We pride ourselves in sharing information on orchid growing. Every month we feature speakers or programs that will help you learn more about the rewarding hobby of growing orchids. We have an exciting monthly show table were members bring in their flowering plants for judging. At the end of the year prizes are given to the top points winners. Our members range from novices to professional growers with one aim -- to share their enjoyment of growing orchids. Monthly meetings regularly include a brief business meeting, a discussion of monthly orchid care, plant judging, an orchid raffle, and our monthly presentation.

We meet the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Come to a meeting to learn and enjoy. Visitors are always welcome!
