Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show: Out of This World

One of the most prevalent ironies of modern science is that we look to space and sci-fi to sate our curiosity about bizarre life forms and wacky-looking aliens when we have plenty of mind-blowing weird shit here on Earth. A new exhibit at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens celebrates the latter category with Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show: Out of this World. Visitors can get up close and personal with "hundreds of star-shaped and otherworldly orchids" and a "cosmic collection of tropical bonsai." Pittsburgh Bonsai Society President David Metzgar will give a presentation on, you guessed it, bonsais, at 1:30 p.m. in the Serpentine Room; a special guest speaker will be on hand every Saturday and Sunday throughout the exhibit's run.
