Have you been wanting to add some really nice plants to your collection? Perhaps some plants that you have seen blooming on the Show Table and drooled over? Well, our next meeting will be a plant sale most of which will have been provided by the members as divisions or keikeis of the beautiful plants you have admired. We will have tables set up for various price plants, for instance there will be a table for $5 plants, another for a different price and so on. This is a way to obtain beautiful plants at very reasonable prices. Let’s hope that there are some of Buddy’s wonderful plants for sale.
Members are encouraged to bring divisions, keikeis, duplicates or other plants that you may want to sell to make space for new ones. A new member asked last meeting where you find reasonably priced plants. Well, a sale of member’s plants is a good way. Members may be paid 50% of the sale price or the money may be donated to ROA. The donation will be much appreciated. The sale is in place of an auction which would be used to raise money for ROA activities throughout the year.
Have you been having problems with a plant that just doesn’t look right or grow well? We will have a clinic staffed by some experienced growers who will help diagnose the situation and give you advice on how to improve your plant.
The meeting will be on May 5 and will start at 2 p.m. at the Hermitage. Remember the meeting date has been moved up so as not to collide with Mother’s Day. You will want to come early to view the plants for sale and to place yours on the appropriate tables. Bring plants for the Show Table.
