A floor display exhibited by R.F. Orchids at the 2011 Orchid Show and Sale

The 2015 Annual Orchid Show & Sale was held February 20, 21. and 22 in the Baker Center Gym at the Moorings Presbyterian Church, 791 Harbour Drive, Naples. Show hours were Friday, 3-8:00 pm, Saturday, 9am-5 pm and Sunday 12 pm-4 pm. The theme was chosen from members’ ideas. Admission was $8 at the door, cash, checks or credit cards accepted. Those under 12 were free.  A coupon good for $1 off admission was available.



The show featured prize-winning orchids of many species and hybrids. Card-table size and large floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements competed for ribbons and awards. (Click here for 2015 Ribbon winners and 2015 Show Awards) American Orchid Society judges awarded  outstanding single plants for best in a variety of classes.  Information about the exhibits and plant competitions are contained in the rules and regulations for the show entries. Please see the information below.

Only hobby grower members are eligible for the Naples Orchid Society awards, but anyone can enter an individual orchid to be judged for AOS awards. If awarded, the owner of the plant must pay for any AOS award, but can opt out of accepting AOS awards when registering the entry. (Click here for 2015 AOS Award winners)

Orchid vendors were present at the show, selling beautiful blooming orchids and orchid supplies. The vendors for the 2015 show were Art Stone Orchids/Palmer Orchids, Florida SunCoast, Krull-Smith, Plantio la Orquidea, and OFE.   NOS members hosted the show and were available to explain how to care for and grow all kinds of different orchids.
