The event highlights the promotion and revival of the hobby and technology in orchid growing and also plant growth in general.
The orchid show featured various garden and landscape displays on orchids, bonsai, foliage plants, cacti, and succulents. Aside from the displays, there are also free lectures on the growth of various garden plants, and there is a trade show beside it which sells an assortment of orchids, flowering plants, houseplants, cacti, succulents, bonsai materials, vegetable seeds, potting mixes, flower pots, fertilizers, and garden tools.
