Cork is used for mounting orchids and Tillandsias. In March Pam was in Portugal and visited a Cork Oak forest and cork stopper production facility. She will discuss the characteristics of cork oak and how cork is grown and harvested. She will then show how cork stoppers are made. After the presentation we will enjoy a demonstration on easy and simple techniques for mounting Tillandsias on cork.
