Live teaser for a masterclass for orchids, teaching them manipulation and mimicry. Human visitors are welcome to come along and learn tricks of their trade!


Orchids are as sexy and seductive as they are intelligent and manipulative. They can mimic other flowers or pollinators to effectively lure in insects and reproduce — but it is not easy to be the very best at this job...

Orchids that want to learn masterclass tips for successful mimicry and seduction are welcome to come along to this live teaser led by Anna Frijstein. Learn tricks of the trade on the road to success!

Masterclass sessions will run between 14:00 - 14:30 and 17:00 - 17:30 only. Human visitors can bring along their own orchid participant, if you so happen to have one on your kitchen window sill, office reception or comparable desk/shelf.
