The 2023 Annual Orchid Show & Sale was held on Feb 24th, 25th and 26th at the Naples Botanical Gardens, 4820 Bayshore Drive, Naples, FL.  On Friday the 24th, the plant sale was held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and the show was held from 12pm to 5.00 pm.  On Saturday the 25th and Sunday the 26th, the show and sale hours were 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The theme for the 2023 show was Orchid Mardi Gras.

Admission to the show were 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 floor-size artistic displays of blooming orchid plants, containers full of potted orchids and cut orchid flower arrangements competed for ribbons and awards.

American Orchid Society judges awarded outstanding single plants for best in show in a variety of classes.  Information about the exhibits and plant competitions are contained in the rules and regulations for the show entries.

Only hobby grower members are eligible for the Naples Orchid Society awards, but anyone entering an individual orchid can be judged for AOS awards. If awarded, the owner of the plant has to pay for any AOS award, but can opt out of accepting AOS awards when registering the entry.  

Orchid vendors were present at the show selling beautiful blooming orchids and orchid supplies. The vendors for 2023 were Krull-Smith Orchids, Mac’s Orchids, Odom’s Orchids, Bredren Orchids, Springwater Orchids, OFE International—Orchid Supplies, and Bactra Orchid Benches. NOS members hosted the show and were available to explain how to care for and grow all kinds of different orchids.
