Central California Orchid Society

Welcome to our society’s website.  Most people are familiar with “Moth Orchids” sold at grocery stores and big box stores.  Others are familiar with Cymbidiums that are typically sold around Easter time.  People fall in love with them and buy them for themselves, or as gifts.  However, once the orchids are in the home, it becomes apparent that most people don’t know how to take care of them.  We often hear how hard it is to grow an orchid.  

That’s what we are here for, to help you understand what the plant needs, not only to survive but to thrive. 

A great way to learn about orchid care is to be with people who love orchids and grow them for fun.  Our society is all about sharing knowledge and getting other people hooked on growing orchids.  Come and join us at a couple of our meetings to see what we're about.
