As the COVID-19 crisis continues, our hearts go out to everyone whose health and/or family has been affected in any way.

We hope everyone stays safe and stays home to protect themselves and those around them. 

There will not be an April 8 meeting at our usual meeting place. 

At this time we can't even predict if there will be
May and June meetings. But we'd like to keep our community of New York orchid lovers together, for as long as possible. 

If you become a member you will be invited to join a virtual 
MOS meeting online on April 8, where we can say hi to each
other and maybe do a digital Show Table! 

Take joy where you can -- enjoy your orchids! 

Next meeting:

To be determined

Learn about growing orchids in your own home!


The Manhattan Orchid Society, Inc. is a group formed with the aim of promoting the knowledge and cultivation of orchids. We specialize in the needs and interests of home growers and hobbyists.

How many different orchids have you seen live and in person?

Every month, members bring their flowering plants to the Show Table. You might see a lot of species and hybrids that are new to you!

MOS is an Affiliated Society of the

American Orchid Society.
