The Naples Orchid Society’s objective is to promote the appreciation and cultivation of orchids as a hobby. And to preserve wild orchids indigenous to Southwest Florida through education and research. To these ends, NOS sponsors year-round activities intended to educate individuals in how to obtain and grow healthy blooming orchids which do well in our area. These activities include a highly regarded series of culture classes offered each winter; in the spring we hold our annual show and in the fall, a large orchid sale is held each October. We also offer scholarships and internships to promote research.

Founded in 1962, the NOS currently has approximately 175 members from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our members range from novice, to advanced hobbyist (many award winning), to recognized commercial growers. Other than payment of modest annual dues, the only requirement for membership is an interest in learning more about orchids and how they grow.
