Start an orchid odyssey

Paris Public Library will be the site for another free University of Illinois Extension winter webinar on March 9.

Moth Orchids – Start an Orchid Odyssey will be held on Thursday, March 9 at 6:30pm.  As the most highly evolved flowers on earth, orchids are an amazingly diverse plant family growing in deserts, mountains, marshes, northern woods, Illinois forests, and even our homes. If you are looking for an easy-to-grow but elegant houseplant, moth orchids are a great option.  In this one-hour webinar, state Master Gardener Coordinator Sandy Mason will help you learn how to grow, repot, and even rebloom moth orchids.

There will be a question and answer period with the presenter following the program. Preregistration is encouraged but not required. Please contact the  Extension office for more details or to register at 217-465-8585 or email  

This webinar may also be viewed from home by preregistering at Recorded videos of webinars can be viewed following each program at
