About
The Desert Valley Orchid Society (DVOS) exists as a group where orchid lovers can meet to share experiences, tips, and guidance about growing orchids. We are in the Phoenix, Arizona area and share expertise on how to grow orchids in a desert environment. If you are new to Phoenix or just interested in our club, you are welcome to attend a meeting as a guest.
 
We meet monthly on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the 
Escalante Community Center
at 2150 E Orange St, Tempe, AZ
from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Visitors are always welcome !!

Our meetings are a lot of fun.  We have a great plant table where members display their blooming plants Plus we also have a raffle where you can pick up some plants to take home. Many times  our speakers bring plants to sell.

Tips For Beginners

If you are having difficulties with pests (mealy bug, aphids, scale or mites) on your plants try this homemade solution:

 

In one gallon of water mix:  1 pint of Isoprophy alcohol + 1 pint of Formula 409 + a few drops of dish soap.  Mix and spray.
