Native orchids grow in the nursery at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanic Gardens. With over 450 species of local orchids, and with around 50% of them endangered, the work here to propagate and reestablish wild populations is a major effort. This work extends from lab work through to the establishment of medicinal orchids in local plantations, with the aim to reduce the pressure on wild populations.
