PHOTO PROVIDED Vandas and other orchids showcase their blooms at the LaGrippe Orchid Garden at the Naples Botanical Gardens in Naples.

The Sanibel Captiva Orchid Society will meet on April 16 at 1:30 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, at 2304 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

Dan Christensen, with Dan & Margie Orchids, will talk about “Va-Va-Va-Vandas.”

Orchid novices are encouraged to come at 1 p.m. for a fundamentals session to hear President Tom Uhler speak on “Understanding Orchid Names: What the Tag Tells.” Anyone with questions or an “ill” orchid that needs diagnosis can bring their plants to the meeting during show and tell.

Most meetings include an orchid sale, as well as a raffle.

Members are invited to participate in a monthly show at each meeting. Ribbons are awarded for the best hybrid and the best species orchids.

Membership is $25 per person or $45 for couples; guests are $5.
