Voluntown - posted Mar, 20 2013
VOLUNTOWN- Dr. Jeff Richards will talk about his passion about Orchids, specifically Lady Slipper Orchids, on Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m. at the Voluntown Public Library. Using a slide show and actual plants, he will show how he grows them from seeds to flowering plant, a process which can take from 3 to 10 years. Included will be pollination, tissue cultures, community pots, re-potting and display. After the talk, you'll be ready to grow some of your own! Dr. Richards is a member of the Connecticut Orchid Society, which meets monthly in the Hartford area.
