"Orchidégartneren" was first screened for an audience in 1978. Its year of release was incorrectly dated as 1977 in the book "Lars von Triers elementer" (1997) by Danish Trier-scholar Peter Schepelern, who however acknowledged and corrected his mistake in the article "Portræt af kunstneren som ung mand" (Filmmagasinet Ekko, 2016).
