The most fascinating element in the show is the dramatic 8' x 16' wall erected in the middle of a circular pool near the entrance. People coming in will be immediately captivated by this immense structure and its vibrant orchids, ferns and other foliage. The wall also has water streaming down in between the foliage back to the pool. Visitors will then be flanked by walls of pink, orange and white orchids. In here, they can closely admire the various species of plants from South America and Asia.

"This is spectacular," said visitor James with his three-year old son. "It's very colorful. And it's great to be able to see so many orchids putting together. You can't really see this view anywhere else in New York."
