About Us

The Full Story

The Kona Orchid Society (KOS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating our members and the public about the collection, culture, and appreciation of orchids. Since 1985, we have promoted fellowship among orchid enthusiasts. Our members include both individual hobbyists and commercial growers, all brought together by our common interest.

We have wonderful meetings where we learn from many orchid experts about how to successfully grow our orchids. After listening to our guest speakers we have a time for Show and Tell. People bring their blooming orchids and share info about what elevation they live at and the type of orchid. It is really amazing to see the beautiful orchids people are growing! We end with an orchid opportunity drawing (so don’t forget to buy some opportunity tickets!) It is really fun!


KOS usually meets at 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:00 p.m.) on the second Friday of the month. The meeting is held at the Makua Lani Academy Bridge House Building at 74-4966 Kealakaʻa St., off Palani Road in Kailua-Kona. Our membership meetings are open to the public and we welcome anyone interested in joining us.  If you have an interest in becoming a member, see our membership page. See our schedule of upcoming events for further information.

Each year on Mother’s Day weekend (Saturday), we hold our Annual Orchid Show and Sale in the pavilion at the Old Kona Airport in Kailua-Kona. If you are in the Kailua-Kona area, you won’t want to miss it. Admission is $2 children under 12 are free. For further information, contact us.
