'World of Flowers' Exhibition: Special Educational Programme for Schools:

Conservation of the Native Orchids of Singapore (A Guided Tour)


Do you know that, of the 226 species of native orchids recorded in Singapore, more than 170 are considered to be extinct? Only five of them are common. Join us to learn about the recent orchid conservation programme, which sets out to monitor existing species, explore ways to conserve their germplasm and increase their number in various appropriate environments in Singapore. You will be amazed by the horticultural considerations and challenges involved in this meaningful re-introduction exercise.
