This is an example of the new trend in Phalaenopsis breeding with 'big lip' flowers. The lip in this case mimics the petals and is called a 'petaloid' lip. This was awarded at Chicago monthly judging to EIOS member Robert Bannister in May, 2022.
The Eastern Iowa Orchid Society (EIOS), formerly the Iowa City Orchid Society, is as our logo states “A small group of people with a big love of growing orchids”. Members come from all around eastern Iowa. We meet at the Shueyville United Methodist Church, Shueyville, Iowa.
The church is located 1 mile EAST of Exit 10 (Swisher-Shueyville) off interstate 380. Our meetings begin with a social time at 6:30 pm; followed by the official meeting and an educational program at 7:00 pm. Meetings are free and open to anyone interested in orchids! Our club displays orchids at regional orchid shows and participates in American Orchid Society orchid judging. Meetings include educational programs on beginning orchid growing, discussion about various types of orchids, and orchid conservation.
Our newsletters highlight activities of the society. They contain photos of member's orchids, educational material, and summary of meeting activities.
Our next formal meeting will be September 15th (NOTE THE DATE - 3RD THURS, CONFLICT AT CHURCH PRECLUDES USUAL DATE) as we do not usually meet in the summer. We do plan an August picnic at the home of Nile and Lois Dusdieker on Sunday August 7th. We have elected new officers for 2022-23 and welcome their leadership.
