Welcome to the Official Newport Harbor Orchid Society (NHOS) YouTube channel. Our primary mission is to foster the culture, cultivation, and conservation of orchids and to educate the members and the public about orchids. We combine our educational goals with a number of special activities and social events throughout the year, including an annual greenhouse and garden tour of members’ growing areas, visits to orchid nurseries located in Southern California, a spring orchid show and sale, an annual banquet, and finally, a holiday potluck. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at the Neighborhood Community Center in Costa Mesa, 1845 Park Avenue. The meetings begin with a culture class from 7:00-7:45 p.m. on a different topic related to orchid culture, followed by the general meeting at 7:45 p.m. that features a speaker, plant display, refreshments, a silent auction, and plant raffle.
