A floor display exhibited by R.F. Orchids at the 2011 Orchid Show and Sale

The 2016 Annual Orchid Show & Sale was held February 27th and 28th at Naples Botanical Gardens, 4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, FL.  Show hours were Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5 pm both days. The theme was chosen from members’ ideas, this year the title was Rainbow of Orchids.

Admission was by our membership(s) in the Naples Orchid Society, the Naples Botanical Garden, or the normal entrance fees taken by the garden.

The show featured prize-winning orchids of many species and hybrids. Card-table size and large floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements competed for ribbons and awards. (Click here for 2016 Ribbon winners and 2016 Show Awards) American Orchid Society judges awarded outstanding single plants for best in a variety of classes.  Information about the exhibits and plant competitions are contained in the rules and regulations for the show entries. Please see the information below.

Only hobby grower members were eligible for the Naples Orchid Society awards, but anyone can enter an individual orchid to be judged for AOS awards. If awarded, the owner of the plant must pay for any AOS award, but can opt out of accepting AOS awards when registering the entry. (Click here for 2015 AOS Award winners)

Orchid vendors were present at the show, selling beautiful blooming orchids and orchid supplies. The vendors for the 2016 show were Florida SunCoast Orchids, Krull-Smith, Mac’s Orchids, Odom Orchids, and OFE Orchid Supplies. NOS members hosted the show and were available to explain how to care for and grow all kinds of different orchids.
