Kunia Orchid Show – March 2019

Posted on Apr 9, 2019 in Main

Plant Quarantine inspectors were at the Kunia Orchid Show at Leilehua High School again this year! More than 1,700 people visited the booth!

Attendees learned about orchid regulations, invasive species, and enjoyed a live and preserved animal display.  This year, the crew added a mobile inspection table where people could have the plants they purchased certified to go to neighbor islands or mainland.  Plants usually would be inspected at PQ’s Sand Island office.  Special thanks to the Kunia Orchid Society for inviting HDOA to the show to do our outreach and also for providing packing materials for certification.
