Look at the beautiful blooms of these orchids. I do not know the names! These beauties are not mine, they belong to my sister, who resides in Ipoh. She loves orchids and has been growing them for several years now.
Now, this little one belongs to me! I only have one orchid plant, because I have no luck with orchids. They don't seem to bloom for me. I have bought some plants over the years, and they bloom only once or some never at all and finally wilted away. This is the only one that survived. For the past few years, this plant has only bloom once a year! But then this year, surprisingly, it has bloomed not once, but thrice. I have not bothered with any fertilisers at all for the past two years, as I have sort of given up on this plant! This little plant has remain little, it has not grown at all! Maybe this is a dwarf orchid plant?? No idea! Is there such thing as a dwarf orchid plant? My sister's orchids are all very tall!
I love the colour, it is a lovely shade of orange and looks very striking and pretty. I hang this little pot in between my two hanging pots of bushy ferns, and it makes a very beautiful contrast among the two greens.
What is the name of this orchid? I've got no idea!
Happy Gardening !
