Indeed, the institution works to preserve and keep the living plant collections, with in vitro cultivations, additional tools to the traditional cultivation. It's in vitro that the Phalaenopsis florish today in our houses.

And for the gardeners who would like to leave with an orchid, producers and associations will present rare species and give you growing and upkeep advice in a 150-sqm tent. Asosciations such as the Société Française d'Orchidophilie [French Society for Orchids], or SFO, and the Association Française, Culture et Protection des Orchidées [French Association, Cultivation and Protection of Orchids], or AFCPO, will be here in the greenhouse to answer your questions.

For the 50th anniversary of the SFO, a photograph exhibition in the Galerie des désert on the orchids in Madagascar, French botanists and SFO missions on the Big Island also expects you.
