For orchid lovers, there’s only one place to be this weekend: the Kaimuki Orchid Society‘s annual orchids show, “Orchids For Everyone.” Kalani High School’s gymnasium and cafeteria will be bursting with color with exotic orchid exhibits, oshibana art, bonsai plant displays and ikebana arrangements. This year’s show also features a hand-crafted miniature Japanese village created by member Albert Nishigaya.
As always, there’ll be the plant sale and garden shop, as well as educational workshops. Orchid repotting will be one of the skills covered, and you can bring your own less-than-healthy plant for repotting help. In addition to door prizes and a daily silent auction, the show will offer its always-popular sushi bar and food concession.
There will be plenty of free parking with a plant-friendly valet service that will hold your purchases until you’re ready to go home.
The Kaimuki Orchid Society was founded in 1976, and currently has over 150 active members who meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at Kilauea Recreation Center, next to Kaimuki Middle School, between Kahala Mall and Diamond Head. New members are warmly welcomed, and usually with a free orchid plant to get them started!
