On the 19th of September 1996, the first protem committee comprising of Dato' Hj. Abdul Jalil bin Abdul Majid (President), Rajah Sreenivasan (Secretary), Ahmad Zahar bin Abdul Wahab, PTT (Treasurer) and a group of 20 ardent orchid hobbyists initiated the Society with the aim of promoting orchid growing as a hobby and promoting eco-tourism.

Though the Society is based in Ipoh, the membership is spread all over Malaysia. Monthly, national and international shows are organized on a regular basis. In our attempt to upgrade the orchid competition, in 2003 we organizes the largest orchid competition, which was listed in the Malaysia Book of Records as the largest orchid competition in Malaysia.
