Taiwan’s climate is perfect for growing the most popular orchid varieties. The Tropic of Cancer divides the country into a subtropical climate in the north and a tropical climate in the south.

The climate in Taiwan permits ideal conditions for growing orchids, such as Phalaenopsis, Cattleyas, Oncidiums, Odontocidiums and other interesting varieties.

Bountiful varieties and the superb quality of orchids from Taiwan ensure a strong competitive edge in the international market, making Taiwan the leading exporter of Phalaenopsis covering more than 50% of the world supply.

The high quality of orchids in Taiwan can be attributed to the advanced growing technologies and the highly skilled workforce with its sophisticated planting skills.

Every year Taiwan is proud to host the Taiwan International Orchid Show (TIOS) at the Taiwan Orchid Plantation (T.O.P.) where visitors can admire an incredibly diverse collection of orchids. This 10-day event attracts 300,000 visitors a year, including 3,000 professionals.

Growers from all corners of Taiwan gather here to show off their latest breeds, and a wide range of international orchid societies demonstrate their flowers on the show stands.
