Tiger Orchid Becomes the Latest Media Darling
BBG’s Grammatophyllum speciosum is continuing to unfurl its hundreds of blossoms, offering a rare opportunity to see this gigantic plant—considered the world’s largest orchid species—in such dramatic bloom. But don’t take our word for it—the media has fallen under its spell, too.
- Gothamist, WNYC, ABC News, and the Huffington Post were captivated by its beauty (and recent weight gain).
- The Brooklyn Paper had a cheeky take on the bloom, likening the plant’s new fertilizer to a special sauce of sorts.
It's still blooming, so come so come to the Aquatic House and see for yourself!
