With the advent of environment consciousness, the show will carry the theme ‘Green Living with Orchids’ and will promote environment friendly ways of gardening and orchid growing.  This season’s show is usually in time for the flowering season of our very own Vanda sanderiana or Waling-Waling orchid. Also highlighting this event is be the transformation of a part of the Quezon Memorial Circle park into a tropical paradise showcasing the best of this season’s blooming orchids with a competition for the search of the ‘Best Philippine Orchid Species, the ‘Best Waling-Waling’ and the ‘Best Orchid in the Show’.
