Throughout the show, thousands of orchids—everything from rare miniature species to the newest and most extravagant hybrids—are on display in both dramatic and naturalistic habitats. A world of orchids awaits you, including thousands of them for sale at the Shop and dozens of opportunities to learn more about them.
