The orchid may be ubiquitous, but it conceals many surprises among its numerous blooms. Regarded as the world’s most diverse botanical family, orchids grow on almost every continent and vary widely in size and form. Did you know there are more species of orchids in the world than the number of bird species or even mammal species?
The diversity of the orchid world will be brought to life in this year’s “Orchid Extravaganza”, which runs from 22 July to 28 August in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay. Set amidst an enchanted forest where the mythical Orchidians call home, a stunning display of some 12,000 orchid plants awaits.
