OrchidMania South Florida is an allvolunteer organization of orchid enthusiasts. Throughout the year, the volunteers meet on Sundays at the OrchidMania greenhouse to care for the orchids that have been donated by commercial growers and hobbyists. These knowledgeable volunteers will gladly provide expert care and growing tips for the plants you choose to take home.
And if the orchid bug has already bitten you, OrchidMania welcomes new volunteers. It is a great way to learn from experts and give back to your community at the same time. To learn more about the organization, check out its facebook page at OrchidMania South Florida or call 786- 408-3897.
