THIS ONE IS CALLED A GROUND ORCHID AND WILL GROW ON POTS AND BLOOM ALL YEAR LONG , AND COME IN MANY COLORS.
Last year Ciejay and I went to the Chai Thai Fair , displaying lots of veggies and flowers,trees, and plants and a wide variety of orchids ,I have a small amount of green thumbism but not a lot, and have had somewhat, ok luck with plants and flowers , but I have never tried my hand at orchids . My Brother Jim ,in America had a orchid room when he lived in Flordia ,before retireing to Tenn.He told me there was nothing to it, and I had the Thai weather on my side which is a plus.. So" what the heck," can you believe it,a lady sold me 4 for 100 baht and I have had them hanging on my front porch, around a pole for a year and all of a sudden they have all bloomed and I'm in ORCHID HEAVEN it has to be the season , I can't stop looking at them and , enjoying them and have took lots of pictures and sent to friends in the US and they are all jealous , let me say here and now "the success of these orchids have nothing to do with my green thumb" , the only thing I have done is to spray water on them every day or two when watering my other plants Mother nature does the rest, along with their strong will to live , and yes they do have a strong will, and can severe, when most plants would just give up and die. .Do you have any orchids around your homes ???? if not ,give them a try , the flowers bloom for almost a month and take hardly, no up-keep at all. I am so proud of them and I,m sure you will feel the same way when yours bloom.
I am including lots of pictures hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy taking pictures of them. If you ever get over to Whang Pho , I have also learned how to divide them and would be more than happy to share with you . HAPPY ORCHID GROWING TO YOU. Malcolm
