  • About Orchid Club | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    About Founded in 1963 Affiliated with the American Orchid Society In 1963, the Eastern Airlines Orchid Club was formed to foster good fellowship through the common love of orchids in all their forms and varieties; to share both the knowledge and techniques of culture and the mystery and beauty of the plants and flowers. History of the Club The above-mentioned mission statement was created by the Eastern Airlines Orchid Club which was founded in 1963. It was through the interest and hard work of O. Clyde Bramblett that the club was formed. The first meeting was held on July 21, 1963 at the IAM Union Hall at Eastern Airlines on NW 36 Street. Officers were elected for a term of one year. They were President Clyde Bramblett, Vice President Carl Gardner, Secretary Fred Stone and Treasurer Ken McCorkel. Thirty-three people signed the roster and paid their first year's dues of $1.00. The first guest speaker was Mr. Ruben Sauleda, who, at that time, had been featured in the Sunday edition of the Miami Herald because of his pollination of orchid seeds and hybridizing experiments. Later, he became Dr. Sauleda and continued his work at his former business "Ruben in Orchids" where he became well known for his hybridizing and flasking until his retirement in May 2014. Not only did the club promote education in the culture and care of orchids among hobbyists back then, but it was and continues to be very active in the community. *Note : Select "More History" To Learn More About The Club's Development Our Vision We seek knowledge through sharing and learning. Members are encouraged to bring their orchids to the monthly meetings as a means of learning through sharing. Plants are not awarded ribbons, thus, eliminating the stigma of feeling that orchids are not good enough to share. Everyone's orchids are worthy and we urge members to bring them for "show and tell". 2023 Board and Committee Chairs Board Members President - Chris Rawls Vice President - Ralph Hernandez Treasurer - Chris Bernt Special Events - Betty Alexander Members-at-Large - Dean and Suellen Powell, Diane Dickhut, Lou Silva,, Rene Silve, Nora Robbins , Yania Martinez and Jorge Li Committee Chairs Communications - Chris Rawls Refreshments - Lou and Rene Silva Membership - Diane Dickhut Raffle - Suellen Powell Silent Auction - Ralph Hernandez Sunshine - Diane Dickhut Zoo Project - Betty Alexander Kampong Project - Yania Martinez Show and Tell - David Foster AOS Representative - Alexis Dominguez Visit EALOC On Facebook

  • Zoo Miami Orchid Project | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    Zoo Miami Project Many of the club members were also members of the South Florida Orchid Society (SFOS). About 1985, after visiting the San Diego Zoo, Jill Sidran, the president of ths SFOS, promoted interest in having Miami MetroZoo (now Zoo Miami) designated as a rescue center for confiscated plants. After the U.S. Department of the Interior granted the designation, the Zoo built a greenhouse and the SFOS members spent Saturdays placing both donated and confiscated plants in trees and exhibits throughout the Zoo. About 1987, the SFOS felt it could no longer continue with this project. Since the EALOC members felt this was a worthwhile project, EALOC took it over and continues with it to present time. After the devastation of Hurricane Andrew, the greenhouse was rebuilt by the Zoo and the watering system was installed by EALOC members. The greenhouse is now maintained by the club. Through this project, the Zoo Miami's botanical gardens are enhanced for Zoo patrons to enjoy. In appreciation, a bronze plaque is permanently displayed in Zoo Miami to recognize EALOC's contributions. Visit Zoo Miami Website Zoo Miami Foundation

  • Queen of the Night's Bloom | ealoclub

    "Queen of the Night" - Pictorial Journey of Its Bloom The epiphyllum oxypetalum, or “Queen of the Night” cactus, is a perennial that can grow to be up to 10 feet tall. This bloom’s journey of this succulent is both secretive and seductive.\ It blooms during the night and the next morning it is closed, never to open again. To observe this wonder, one must be extremely vigilant. The telltale sign of its premiere performance is when, for approximately three or four days before opening, the stems of the blooms begin to turn upward. These photos are sequenced from beginning to end. The bloom fully opened around 10:00 pm and closed at sunrise. Take note of the angle of the upturning stems previous to blooming. The final morning, the stems dropped. Queen 1 Queen 2 Queen 11 Queen 1 1/11 Click on "Left and Right" Arrows On Sides of Each Slide to Navigate Through Frames.
