A miniature orchid has foliage that isn't more than 6 inches in height.
A micro orchid has foliage that isn't more than 4 inches in height.
What I personally found interesting, from my orchid newbie perspective, was some of these tiny plants had blooms 3 or 4 inches across and some of them blooming multiple times a year! Pretty neat!
The structure of the meeting went as such: announcements, bloom table, break, speaker and raffle. One was able to purchase orchids at any point in the meeting. ;)
Anyway, this is a pretty picture-heavy post. Let's look at what was on the bloom table of my orchid society!
I feel like I'm pretty lucky to have, what I feel, is a robust orchid society. There are quite a few people who all have such a fleshed out facet (or two) of this hobby to share with inquiring minds, like mine. Dues are a relatively low at 35~ish dollars per year. There is a ton of free information and unique plants for sale. I'm able to to see flowering orchids and speak with the people who bloom them. In my opinion, totally worth it!
