On Thursday, February 16th, hitch your wagon to the newest caravan tour (or jump in someone else’s wagon). Melanie has put together another exciting tour, this time to Yamamoto Dendrobiums and Gines Orchids down south. The caravan will assemble at Punalu’u Bake Shop in Na’alehu and make its first stop at Yamamoto Dendrobiums in Mountain View. The focus at Yamamoto’s nursery will be on dendrobiums, which are also the topic of February’s meeting, so we should all be authorities on growing them by then. Following lunch in Pahoa, the caravan will continue on to Gines Orchids in Kea’au, which specializes in orchid species.
