Thank you for visiting the Baton Rouge Orchid Society (BROS). We hope that you find the information both interesting and useful. Our mission is to provide information on orchid cultivation and conservation by a network of enthusiasts.
Did You Know?
Catasetum orchids have both male and female flowers. They look very different, but can bloom on the same plant.

April's Meeting Recap
While our attendance was smaller than expected, we did welcome four new members to BROS. It was nice to see Danna Spayde at the meeting as well.
Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon
The Friends of LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens invite you to a Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon honoring the dedicated volunteers at a gathering in the LSU Rural Life Museum.
During lunch, Burden Museum and Gardens Directors, Dr. Jeff Kuehny and Bill Stark, will present the new Master Plan for Burden Museum and Gardens.
Lunch will be served with drinks and desserts.
Please RSVP for the luncheon headcount. Original event posting found here.
Next Month's Meeting
The BROS May meeting will be held on Wednesday May 18, at 7pm at the Burden Conference Center. Our program will be presented by Mary Richardson and it will be on the subjects of Phalaenopsis Orchids. Mary has been growing Phal's for many years in Lake Charles and recently won a blue ribbon, Best Grown Plant and Best Flower, plus an AOS Award of Merit (AM) at the Acadiana Orchid Show in Lafayette.
Many new orchid growers begin with the common moth orchid and it has sparked the desire to learn more about this beautiful plant. We hope every BROS member as well as any visitors can join us for this meeting.
