March Speaker: Debra Atwood, Napa Valley Orchids – “What’s in the pot?”
Napa Valley Orchids was started in March 2001 by third generation Napan Debra Atwood. In addition to growing a greenhouse full of beautiful orchids, primarily species, she also consults, is a regular speaker at orchid societies and garden clubs, and in addition, performs greenhouse maintenance for a handful of clients.
She has also taught orchid classes for many years, and still conducts orchid workshops as time allows. Currently Debra grows Angraecoids, species Phalaenopsis, Neofinetias, Maxillarias, and what ever else catches her fancy. Her greenhouse maintains an intermediate temperature range, and her plants thrive in the Mediterranean climate of Napa Valley.
What’s in the pot?
In her talk “What’s in the Pot?”, Debra will share her expert knowledge about orchid culture, repotting and some of the unexpected findings the grower may have while repotting, and how to handle these.
