If you love flowers, you don’t want to miss the 60th Annual Orchids Expo Show and Sale in Sarasota, Florida. Regardless if you attended last year or not, going to this event is a great way to see traditional and exotic species. Head to the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium on either Jan. 6 or 7, and get ready for an exciting time.
Bring an Orchid Home
Just like before, the Sarasota Orchid Society will host the upcoming event, set for 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Jan. 6 and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Jan. 7. As it’s known for its dedication to the enjoyment of and education about orchids, you’ll have an incredible time. Plus, admission is only $5 for adults. If you currently live in Florida, then you already know that the climate is perfect for growing this type of flower. If you decide to take an orchid home, or maybe several, a little bit of education will help you successfully care for it, even if you don’t have a “green thumb.”
As you make your way from one display to another, you’ll be awestruck. In fact, some of the orchids are so stunning that you’ll think they’re plastic. But as you get a closer look and smell their delightful fragrance, you’ll realize they’re all 100 percent real.
If you’ve attended other orchid expos, the one thing you’ll notice at the 2018 event in Sarasota is the incredible diversity of species. Not only will you have the chance to look at a broad range of orchids, you can also learn fascinating facts as you talk to different growers. For instance, did you know that the orchid is the largest family of flowering plants in the world?
If you bought an orchid from a traditional nursery or floral shop, you’d expect to pay a lot of money, but at this show and sale, you’ll find the prices affordable. Remember, while you get to take an orchid home to enjoy, the money goes to help the Sarasota Orchid Society, a nonprofit organization, so you both come out winners.
