Insects and viruses can destroy an orchid collection. In this class, students who have a basic understanding of orchid care will learn how to identify pest problems and diseases, and how to intervene. They will also be given an overview of possible treatment solutions, including the proper use of chemicals and household products that can help with orchid pests and diseases. Each class is followed by a guided tour of our orchid display house, as well our orchid greenhouses.
