Join us as we celebrate the orchid in all of its shapes, sizes, colors and fragrances. Orchid growers from around the world have converged on Fairchild for three days to display and sell their orchids, as well as share tips on how to grow their tremendous plants. There is no other flower quite like the orchid. Its intricate and delicate bloom is so breathtakingly beautiful that orchid hunters have sometimes risked life and limb to obtain it. We crave the orchid so thoroughly that we have created over four times as many orchid hybrids as there are wild species. The crown jewel in the South Florida landscape, the orchid is displayed on palm and oak trunks alike, as well as in houses built solely for that purpose. The orchid is, quite simply, the world’s most coveted plant. Dr. Hong Liu, a research ecologist working jointly for Fairchild and FIU is working to conserve the rare terrestrial orchid, Geodorum eulophioides, which was, until very recently, thought to be extinct. Dr. Liu is currently working with officials and farmers in China to protect this beautiful endemic orchid from habitat destruction by aggressive farming techniques. If you are wondering what this orchid looks like, look no further than this year’s Orchid Festival t-shirts, which bear a reprint of a watercolor of the orchid by Fairchild’s own Ricardo Aberle. During this weekend’s Orchid Festival, we are unveiling the latest book in the “Gardening with Fairchild” series, entitled Growing Orchids in South Florida, by Georgia Tasker. This wonderful book is a complete guide to growing orchids in South Florida. In it you will find detailed information on orchid types, orchid care and orchid pests and diseases. Growing Orchids in South Florida is a must for anyone interested in growing or learning about orchids. Delicious food, unique children’s activities, informative lectures, and of course, beautiful orchids have all combined to create Fairchild’s 8th Annual International Orchid Festival. On behalf of the Fairchild volunteers and staff, Welcome! We’re so very glad you came! Carl E.

CONVENTION ON INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN ENDANGERED SPECIES OF WILD FAUNA AND FLORA (CITES) CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments (the United States is a member of CITES). Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden expects all exhibitors and customers to abide and honor national and international legislation pertaining to the exportation and importation of orchids. Fairchild does not condone the collection of threatened orchids from the wild for trade and expects nurseries to promote the sustainable and legal trade of artificially propagated stocks. ORCHID Selecting and Growing Tips CONSISTENT CARE EQUALS CONSISTENT BLOOMING Here are some tips for the novice: • Find out what type of orchid you are getting. There are thousands of different types of orchids. Before you buy, ask the grower about specific care. • Most orchids like partial shade. A screened patio or mature oak are great orchid houses. • Most orchids are epiphytes and may be attached to trees. • Pests are few, but can be controlled with very dilute liquid Ivory and water. • Get help: buy the new book, Growing Orchids in South Florida, by Fairchild’s Georgia Tasker, take a class or join the Orchid Society. WE’LL POT YOUR PLANTS FOR YOU! Drop off your newly purchased orchids at the OrchidMania booth, and we’ll pot them for you while you shop, have a bite to eat or enjoy Fairchild’s beauty. All proceeds benefit local AIDS organizations. OrchidMania: OrchidMania is an all-volunteer group of amateur orchid growers who use their hobby to raise money for grassroots AIDS organizations. Don’t miss Orchids in the Park, our 12th annual fundraising event to benefit the Pediatric AIDS Program at the University of Miami Leonard Miller School of Medicine and other local AIDS programs.
