Welcome to the website of the Central Louisiana Orchid Society in Alexandria, LA. The CLOS was formed in 1980 to promote fellowship among orchid enthusiasts and to educate others in our area on ways to conserve, cultivate, and hybridize orchids.
Orchids are fun to grow and very rewarding. They are great long lasting gifts for all occasions that re-bloom year after year. If you are interested in growing orchids, we can help you get started. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced orchid grower, we all have something to learn from each other. The best way to learn more about orchids and meet others who are passionate about this enjoyable hobby is to join and participate in an orchid society.
Our society provides fellowship, encouragement, and further education of orchid growing. Our members have a wide range of orchid growing experience and grow their orchids in greenhouses, outdoors, indoors under lights, and on windowsills. We can also help you diagnose problems with orchid culture and related pests.
Except in special circumstances, our club meets monthly in the Youth Building at St. James Episcopal Church, located at 1546 Albert St. in Alexandria, LA. Meetings begin at 2:30 on the third Sunday of each month and are open to the general public. Anyone with an interest in orchids is encouraged to attend.
