ORCHIDS | Treasures of the Vietnamese jungle

3. - 19. 3. 2023

The annual orchid exhibition at the Prague Botanical Garden brings joy from the colourful beauty of the flowers and many interesting facts from the orchid world. This time it will take you to Vietnam - a plant treasure trove of the world.

The atmosphere in the Fata Morgana Greenhouse will be charged with the Vietnamese New Year (Tết Nguyên Đán).  The festive colours in Vietnam are yellow and red - the colours of happiness.

Discover the treasures of this unique country with us.

More than 30 % of all orchids grow only in Vietnam and nowhere else in the world.
So far, over 1,200 species of orchids in more than 170 genera have been found there. And every year new ones are described.

Vietnam is extremely interesting not only for its nature but also for its culture. The country has been developing rapidly over the last twenty years, but it has kept its customs, traditions and beliefs. For the Vietnamese, flowers are an important part of life. They love to grow them and decorate their surroundings with them on weekdays and holidays.

Discover the treasures of Vietnam with us.

For visitors who succumb to the magic of orchids, we have prepared the popular sale of orchids and other plants. Our long-term colleague Radek Kacerovský from Pokojovky.cz imported them directly from the Netherlands and you can find them in the growing facilities under the Fata Morgana Greenhouse (marked by navigation). There will be a wide range of cultivars and botanical species, some suitable for beginners, others for more advanced growers. Experienced salespersons will advise and help to choose the right plant. The sale is part of the exhibition - entry to the sales area is only possible with a valid ticket.

The floral arrangements for the exhibition are designed and realized by one of the best Czech florists Klára Franc Vavříková. This is the fifth time in a row that she has participated in the orchid show in our garden. She was inspired by the whole of Vietnam and its wide range of colours. During the walk through our greenhouse, you will meet many typical symbols of this unique country. All arrangements are original using varied materials and multicoloured flowers of live orchids and other plants. Hopefully, even a flying dragon will join us!

The arrangements will be created with the help of students of the Czech Horticultural Academy Mělník.


Orchids belong to the orchid family and are one of the two most numerous families of vascular plants. The exact number of orchid species worldwide is unknown. It is estimated that about one in ten species of higher plants on earth is an orchid. However, new ones are described every year.

Our garden grows approximately 2,500 species of orchids in its greenhouses. We specialize exclusively in valuable native botanical species. The collection includes well-known genera, such as Cattleya, Cymbidium, Dendrobium and Oncidium, as well as genera that are known only to specialists. A large part of the collection consists of miniature orchids from the Pleurothallidinae section, which is used for scientific purposes.



The exhibition was also created thanks to the support of our company partner Forestina and media partner Radio Blaník. Thank you.
