On a latest chilly December night on the County Truthful Constructing in Golden Gate Park, a bunch of about 30 botanical lovers took their seats dealing with rows of fastidiously potted orchids able to be admired and mentioned.
It was a typical assembly, even jolly, with vacation goodies and a member in a Santa hat. Society member Paul Bourbin, a.okay.a. “The Orchid Physician,” led the group in a expertise session about Disa, a genus within the orchid household. The dialogue centered on floral matters like moss, charcoal, complicated orchid hybrids and sepals.
