The spectacular four-day event will feature garden exhibits and orchid displays by local and international orchid growers.  American Orchid Society judges will award the best exhibit and orchid at the show.

Orchid experts will be on hand every day during the show to answer all of your orchid questions.

Have fun participating in our raffles and silent auctions throughout the day.

Exotic orchids from around the world will be available for sale.

Deb Bodei, President of the Deep Cut Orchid Society said, “Orchids are perfect for providing a tropical touch to your interior space.  If you want to enjoy these exotic blooms, but are worried that they are difficult to grow, don’t despair. There are plenty of fool-proof varieties that will flower again and again with the minimum amount of fuss.”

Helen Kroh, Show Chairperson, said, “Orchids are beautiful and fascinating plants. The thought of growing orchids, especially indoors should not be intimidating. Despite their reputation for being finicky flowers, orchids aren’t difficult to grow.  Like any plant, they’ll thrive in the right conditions. The trick is sizing up your indoor environment and choosing the orchids that will be happy there. ”Admission and parking are free.

Established over 30 years ago, the Deep Cut Orchid Society is a non-profit organization and one of the largest orchid clubs in the tristate area dedicated to the education and culture of orchids.  Deep Cut Orchid Society meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the Monmouth Reform Temple, 332 Hance Avenue, Tinton Falls, at 7:30 p.m. An orchid expert gives a presentation, members bring in their special blooms, and experienced orchid growers are available to provide advice and answer culture questions.
