Welcome to the Irish Orchid Society

Here are just some of the orchids in bloom this February at the National Botanic Gardens. The orchid house in the Botanic Gardens is attached to the Palm house. It's divided into three different temperature zones; cool, intermediate and warm.


If you are unsure of where the best place for your orchid is, pop along to the Botanics and you'll see the the different orchids in different heat zones. For example you'll find a good number of Cymbidiums in the cool house so they may be ideal for a slightly colder hall (as long as it's not too draughty!). Phalaenopsis may also do better in a warm kitchen.
