In Eileen's words, "To some folks, growing orchids is serious business. There is no doubt that there is always more to learn whichever type of grower you may be. To those of us who grow purely for pleasure, we have a need to make learning fun."
The competition's topic for 2016 is "Why I Grow the Orchids I Grow" and the deadline for submission is November 30, 2016.
