This month’s speaker is Scott Collins. The presentation "Odontoglossums, A Look at Their Color", will give the audience a view into the wide variety of color and shapes that make up this genera.  Many of the intergeneric hybrids offer plants for almost any cultural condition that will give months of brightly colored flowers.  He will also discuss the cultural needs of the group.
