The Kew Gardens orchid festival begins this weekend, with a display inspired by Indonesia's wildlife and plant diversity.
The festival is open in the Princess of Wales Conservatory where visitors can enjoy an immersive journey through different zones of the glasshouse which represent different aspects of Indonesian wildlife and culture.
As well as many orchids there is also an archway made from carnivorous pitcher plants and a showcase of Kew's work in Indonesia to try to protect and promote the country's biodiversity.
Indonesia is an archipelago of more than 17,504 islands including Java, Borneo and Bali. Think you know about orchids? Take our quiz to find out exactly how much you do know.
