You can consider Marc Hachadourian the mad scientist of the NYBG's many exhibitions. It's rare that an exotic plant destined for the floor of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory doesn't pass by him first, having been carefully grown by his team in the Nolen Greenhouses for Living Collections.
On last week’s Real Dirt podcast with Ken Druse, Marc was welcomed on to answer questions about the tenth anniversary of the Orchid Show, as well as a few queries on the Garden as a whole. It’s an enlightening look into not only the orchid group—a topic Marc is especially well-versed in—but everything we’re doing here to make this year’s exhibition a wild success. —MN
