Description of the Event:
Escape the cold and surround yourself with beautiful tropical orchids in the Grand Room. See orchid blooms as small as a mosquito and blooms with petals extending 10 inches or more. Use your imagination to discover how the moth orchid, slipper orchid, and dancing lady orchid got their names. Enjoy fragrant orchids such as Cattleya with vivid floral notes, Maxillaria that smells like roasted coconut, or Oncidium 'Sharry Baby' reminiscent of vanilla and chocolate. Attend a free talk by experienced orchid growers and discover the best orchids for growing in the home. Visit vendors to select from a fantastic array of orchids and shop for orchid growing supplies including specialty potting mixes and fertilizer.
