OUR MEETING WILL BE ON CONTAINERS.....EVERYONE LIKES TO GIVE OR SELL PLANTS....BUT, ATTRACTIVE CONTAINERS ARE A REAL PLUS.

WE WILL HAVE A DEMONSTATION ON HOW TO PAINT THE POTTERY BY DALE GALLIANO....THIS WILL MAKE THE PLANTS WORTH MORE AT A SALE OR REALLY SPECIAL AS A GIFT.
ALSO, HOW TO DECORATE A PLASTIC POT TO MAKE IT MORE APPEALING.
ALSO, RECYCLED MATERIALS FOR CONTAINERS
AND PLANT BALLS MADE WITH MOSS (KOKODOMO -JAPANESE STYLE)

AS USUAL WE WILL HAVE A PLANT RAFFLE...ONLY $1. FOR 3 TICKETS.
MEMBERS ARE ASKED TO DONATE PLANTS FOR THE RAFFLE...THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO INCREASE YOUR VARIETIES OF BROMELIADS AND TROPICALS.
