Make your Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show memories last for seasons to come by taking the beauty home.

Attend our Used Orchid Sale for a chance to pick up used Phipps orchids — including Phalaenopsis, Oncidium hybrids, Vanda and Epidendrum — for your own garden! The prices are $2 for 2-inch Phalaenopsis orchids , $5 for 4-inch Phalaenopsis orchids and Oncidium hybrids, $10 for Vanda orchids and $20 for large Epidendrum orchids from Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show: Out of This World. Orchids are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so please arrive early for the best selection. Bags will be provided, but we encourage you to help conserve resources by bringing your own. This event is free to the public. The sale is scheduled to take place within the Outdoor Garden; if weather is inclement, it will be moved to the Production Greenhouses.
