And the entrance is F-R-E-E!
For a brief introduction, this Kuala Lumpur Orchid Garden was set up primarily as a showcase of the nation’s rich variety of orchids, as well as to provide a center for the growing, conservation, research and study of this wonderful flowering genus of plant. Set in the lush undulating greenery of the city’s Taman Tasik Perdana (Perdana Botanical Lake Gardens), it provides a striking visual display of the orchid family in all its glory.
Comprising a semi-circular pergola for climbing and epiphytic orchid, plus a rock garden for the terrestrial varieties the garden crowns the top of a gently sloping hillock, overlooking well-teaded gardens climbing orchids grow vertically from the ground, thus needing support for their roots to cling on. epiphytic orchids need a host plant, preferably a dead tree trunk to grow on. meanwhile, terrestrial orchids grow on the ground.
The orchid family is the largest family of plants, up to 800 genera thrive from east to west from Arctic to Antarctic.
