PICK OF THE WEEK March 26-27 Orchid Show Lauritzen Gardens, 100 Bancroft St. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., $6/ages 6-12, $3/members FREE 346.4002 , lauritzengardens.org When my long-dormant orchid plant materialized with bulging buds last week I was so proud. Nevertheless, my two intricately pretty blooms have nothing on Lauritzen’s annual show, produced by the Greater Omaha Orchid Society. Enjoy displays from local, regional, national and international vendors and growers, and ask the experts for advice on keeping the finicky, Goldilocks of plants in bloom. New this year is a grower of quality slipper orchids. While onsite keep the botanical fun going with Lauritzen’s Spring Flower Show (through May 8) and Omaha artist Kristin Pluhacek’s exhibit Weeds/Pods/Seeds and The Landscapes (through April 17).
