Low profile Orchid show brings a whole new world to Lalbagh

All you gardeners of Bengaluru, here’s something you might have missed. Lalbagh saw a beautiful show of Orchids last weekend. The Orchid Society of Karnataka (TOSKAR) had organised a two-day Orchid show, on September 21 and 22.

Exotic species and range of hybrid Orchids were on display. It was altogether a new flowery world, with blooms of all colours, size and shapes.


That does look like a butterfly, but no, it’s not! The shape is deceptively similar. There were many more surprises like his on display at the exhibition. 

There were stalls selling Orchids, Orchid accessories and books related to Orchid cultivation. Training sessions and demonstration of various aspects of Orchid growing were also arranged. This was a less-hyped, not publicised show, first of its kind in Bangalore.


If you have missed it this time, keep a watch on this low profile website, http://www.toskar.org/ for the next such event.
