The Vanda Orchid Nursery Reopens

Anyone who is fascinated by orchids cannot miss this opportunity. Dedicated to Vandas – a group of orchids comprising different genuses, mainly “Vanda” – the Vandário [Vanda Nursery] is one of Inhotim’s oldest themed gardens. In March 2014, it moved to a new address, next to the Lago Novo, on the Park’s orange section. There it is possible to contemplate exuberant flowers. Keen-eyed visitors will easily notice that each flower has a petal that stands out from the others. This unique petal is called labellum (or lip) and serves as a “guide” for the pollinator.

This Saturday, the Vandário will reopen for visitors, with new orchids, some of them straight from Thailand! Click here and start planning your visit.
