The Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show, aptly themed “Eye Candy” for 2019, brings these two beautiful plants (both favorites of ours) to the forefront of the Conservatory.

As always with our show features, we wanted to share a few of our favorite rooms from this show and hope you'll make it out to visit for yourselves!

The Palm Court

The Palm Court is always a favorite spot for us when visiting Phipps Conservatory, and at the Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show it is no different.

Aside from the fact that Phipps restored all of the glass in this particular room in 2018, The Palm Court also features an array of beautiful orchids as a central focal point, adorning the sides of the court, and even hanging from the ceiling in peppermint candy themed baskets.

Since The Palm Court is the first room you'll see when visiting Phipps, this really sets the tone of the rest of the visit.

The Serpentine Room

The Serpentine Room is often one of the most elaborate rooms during a flower show at Phipps, and for the Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show the room is a bit more reserved.

The reason? It is full of beautiful bonsai plants!

We almost always make a detour out into the Japanese Courtyard Garden when visiting Phipps, but seeing them at their best is seasonally dependent. During this particular show the Serpentine Room is full of a number of beautiful bonsai plants looking at their prime and we quite frankly can't get enough of it.

Perhaps one day we will try to grow our own!

The Orchid Room

The Frank Sarris Orchid room at Phipps Conservatory is one of the stars of the Orchid and Tropical Bonsai flower show and features an array of beautiful orchids (and other flowers) with color combinations that are simply stunning.

We'll be the first to admit that the room isn't much different from other flower shows, but only because the Orchid Room is a favorite in every single flower show.

That being said, seeing beautiful orchids in the rest of the conservatory certainly builds up the appreciation before you make it into this room for your visit!

Overall, the Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show is perhaps a bit more of a subtle flower show when compared to say, the Spring Flower Show or the Winter Flower Show, but as this one shows off two of our favorites during its January to March run, well, we really can't say no!
