Once through the Vanda Orchids and inside the Pond house There are hundreds of orchids of all kinds arranged in this display. Normally the Pond House contains the Giant Amazonian waterlilies. These are normally removed in the winter and the pond water removed. This display over the water is perfect for the orchids as the humidity will be high. The water is dyed black to inhibit algae growth, but it adds a reflected surface which enhance the orchids. In the corners there are displays of the propagation of orchids in sterile culture medium.
