Greetings from the folks of the Orchid Grower's Guild, Madison WI. We have regular meetings, typically the third Sunday of the month. Our meeting place is at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, 3330 Atwood Ave. in Madison. Our big event is Orchid Quest in late January/early February. Orchid Quest is one of the largest orchid displays and shows in the mid-west. See the "meetings' and "Orchid Quest"  pages on this site for additional information.

​If you can grow a houseplant you can grow an orchid!  Many  species are amazingly hardy and do not require as much care as some houseplants. Orchids come in many sizes, shapes, colors, and ease or difficulty of growing. There are approximately 50,000 different orchids in the world and each is a jewel of a flower.
