The Calypso bulbosa orchid is the official flower of the Greater Lansing Orchid Society.

Study Group

The purposes for which the Society is organized are to create an awareness of orchid culture; to foster the preservation of native species of orchids; to support research and development of orchid culture; and to hold meetings, lectures, and exhibitions.

GLOS normally meets on the third Saturday during the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November. 7:00 pm is the meeting hour, but come early to see what plants are available for purchase from our speaker-of-the-day and from other Members, and/or to bring plants to sell at our silent auction and raffle tables.

Our next meeting is March 21st at the Presbyterian Church in Okemos, 2258 Bennett Rd. Come at 6:30 pm for socializing, snacking, asking questions, and purchasing orchids. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm.
Our speaker this meeting is Alex Challis, who will talk about Mini Vandas:

A look at the various smaller growing orchids in the Vanda, Aerangis & Angraecoid alliances.

Most orchid growers do not have a greenhouse and are limited in the amount of space they can use. There is a number of smaller growing plants in the Vanda Alliance that will grow well on windowsills, in terrariums and under artificial lighting. Alex will go over a number of miniature species and a few hybrids of the Vanda, Angraecum & Aerangis Tribes.
