Ginormous Orchid Auction, Oct 6 at Monmouth Park

Deep Cut Orchid Society (DCOS) is moving the annual auction to a new venue this year, with much better facilities.  The event will be in the Garden Room at Monmouth Park Race Track.

The auction features 200 plants from top nurseries across the US (NJ, NY, CT, FL, CA & HI), as well as 100 plants donated from member collections.  In that segment, there will be divisions of many rarities and clones no longer available in the open market.

All plants have names, and basic care instructions can be downloaded from DCOS web site after the auction.

Free parking and admission.  Doors open at 9 AM, and the auction runs from 10 AM to 4 PM.

A warm lunch buffet is available ($16 at the door, $12.50 if prepaid through DCOS web site).  There will be a cash bar (and access to sports betting in the next room). 

If any questions, feel free to send me a PM.  A couple of photos of plants known to be in the auction follow:

Cattleya Fire Magic 'Krull-Smith' AM/AOS (83 pts)

Phalaenopsis Sweet Sugar

Cymbidium Drew's Delight 'Maplewood'

Paphiopedilum primulinum (sequential multi-floral)

The plant list is now closed (330 entries).  We have a great selection of both species and hybrids, including a few divisions of select historical plants.  You can find both the slide presentation, and plant list in 3 versions (alphabetical, by supplier & in auction sequence) at:

We have organized this event to be FUN.  There is a hot buffet lunch (subsidized at $16 at the door), a cash bar, and a free mimosa to early arrivals.  Payment is accepted in cash, by check, CC or Paypal.

If anyone has any questions, send me a PM.  I will make every effort to respond within 24 hours.
