Santa Barbara 70th International Orchid Show

Every year I make the trek to beautiful Santa Barbara just for this show! It showcases vendors from around the world and their orchids, related crafts and supplies. This gives you the chance to see the new hybrids, stock up on potting materials and even buy a few new plants! *TIP- I find its best to go on the last day to get the best deals. The vendors lower their prices so they don’t have to repack and ship items home. Also, the orchid houses on the way to the show also have sales and good deals!*

Here are a few of my pics! I took close to 800!

  1. I’m on the other side of the country so no SBO for me, but I’m glad you shared some of the spoils with us. Did you get any new orchids? Just visited the Illinois Orchid Society Show myself and picked up about 5 new ones, though I have yet to post any on my blog, but I will. Cheers!

  2. Hi there! It was a wonderful day in Santa Barbara, I picked up 12 orchids at really good prices! That’s why I always go on the last day 🙂 I have so many pictures! I think I’ll just add a link to my Facebook so everyone can see them. Can’t wait to see your new orchids and hear about the Illinois show!
