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 were 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.

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.
