The 2016 Pacific Orchid Expo
This year, the Pacific Orchid Exposition has chosen “A Legacy of Orchids” as the theme for its 64th annual show. As one of the oldest plant species, orchids have long been a symbol of refinement, wildness, and exotic discoveries. Its historical significance can be traced back to the Ara Pacis of ancient Rome, the Materia Medica, an ancient Chinese pharmaceutical text, and the works of naturalist Charles Darwin, who studied the flower.
The expo puts over 150,000 orchids from around the world on display, and features docent tours, orchid potting demonstrations, cultivation tips, and a diverse array of orchids for sale.
The exposition is hosted by the San Francisco Orchid Society, a non-profit organization that regularly implants the culture and cultivation of orchids into the fertile minds of the community through exhibitions, publications, and conservation groups.
