Kabi is holding two native orchid shows per year. The April Show features the Queensland floral emblem Dendrobium bigibbum. The August show will feature the spectacular Dendrobium speciosum. All are open, so all orchid growers are encouraged to bench Australasian native orchids.
At our show, you will see a large variety of native orchids, both species and hybrids which should thrill not only the orchid enthusiast but also the general public. In addition, you will be able to purchase orchids and related paraphernalia from our vendors.
A full schedule is available to download here and in our Facebook group.
