The botanical garden is an ex situ conservation area that is used as a center for the conservation of plant diversity from extinction. Natural orchid is one of the botanical garden collections and is a native flora of Indonesia which has an important role as a parent crossing. Disease infection is still one of the limiting factors in orchid conservation efforts. Detection of diseases against natural orchids in the Bogor Botanical Gardens, Purwodadi Botanical Gardens, and Balikpapan Botanical Gardens showed positive reactions infected with Odontoglossum ringspot virus (ORSV). The characterization results are known that ORSV Indonesia is thought to originate from Germany. Based on the data it is known that the spread of the virus occurs through the trade activities of orchid seedlings and cut flowers. This report is a big consideration considering the role of the botanical garden as a conservation institution and the foremost fortress in saving plants. The botanical garden is obliged to maintain and maintain every collection that is owned in order to grow well. In addition, efforts to prevent the spread of diseases that have already entered must receive more attention through improving the quality of research. This finding also shows that botanical gardens in Indonesia are not yet safe and free from disease. Efforts to maintain the collection plants by the botanical garden are still lacking. Detection should be carried out routinely to monitor the development and spread of the disease, and control measures as early as possible. Another effective way to protect and maintain the health status of natural orchids in Indonesia is to limit and control the importation of orchids from other countries.
