The Orchid Grower's Guild, Inc. OGG is a non-profit organization affiliated with America Orchid Society. It  is dedicated to educating both OGG members and the public about orchids  and their culture. OGG also promotes the conservation and appreciation  of orchids. 

   

If  you can grow a houseplant, you can grow an orchid! Many species are  amazingly hardy and do not require as much care as some common  houseplants. Orchids come in many sizes, shapes, colors and ease or  difficulty of growing. There are approximately 50,000 different orchids  in the world  and each is a jewel of a flower.
