    Last October 2011, we had Alan Koch from Gold Country Orchids, he gave a presentation on caring for orchids. He had a lot of different tips about what each orchid type needs to grow well. I did not have any paper for notes but was wonder if someone has any notes they could share. I would just like to make some notes if possible. You can either send me a message or bring any notes you have to a meeting.
