CJOS March 2024 Newsletter

Updated: 5 days ago


Happy March Everyone!


Welcome to the CJOS March 2024 monthly blog post! Be sure to check-out the SEPOS auction in April, as they will have a large selection of orchid vendors selling many beautiful plants! See details below.🌷Spring is close!


As we progress into March and quickly approach Spring, many orchids are continuing to bloom! 🌼 With the longer daylight ☀️ per day slowly increasing, you should start to notice new growth 🌱 on some plants exposed to outdoor light (near windows, in bright rooms with windows, etc...). Slowly begin to increase watering 💦 for most orchids and fertilize with a well-balanced N-P-K fertilizer (especially as we head into early Spring growth). Observe plants for any hidden pests and treat them appropriately. In just a couple of months (typically just after Mother's Day in May), it will be warm enough for most orchids to grow outside. The natural daylight and temperature adjustments between day and night will help stimulate lots of new growth and flowers.


We hope to continue to grow CJOS as a fun and knowledgeable orchid society; We welcome all to join us monthly! Happy orchid growing and gardening!
