When visiting the local nursery I noticed that they had reduced the Orchids to half price, well I love these plants, but I have only had moderate success with them, I bought two as gifts and a slipper Orchid (Paphiopedilum) for myself, I have never tried this type before so I am posting a photograph before it packs up and dies on me.   The white one pictured here is Phalaenopsis and is the easiest to grow, and I have had many plants that continue producing flowers season after season.  The dark red one (Orchidee) is of a variety that I have never tried before, but I thought the colour so dramatic, I bought it for my friend for her birthday.


Hope you enjoy I will let you know it it survives!

    Good morning Suki x,
    Thank you for visiting and inviting me to your space.  Yes, sitting in the hammock and enjoying the views!  The orchids are lovely.  I don’t have any flowering paphs and yours is lovely.  I have a few babies that I’m growing/raising but that may take 18 – 24 months.  But that is the joy and challenge. Your space is lovely; a little bit of art, music, photography and good verse. 
    You will have to share the origin of your name.   Maybe taken from an orchid’s name!  Laughing with you!  I will in the days ahead read  and enjoy more of your space.  Until…..enjoy your Sunday.   Bittersweet

    I bought my Aunt who has a green thumb a book on these4,and she never had any luck.From what I can tell they grow in bark not soil,and they love humidity,but dont want to sit in water.Good luck.The ones at the botanical gardens are always beautiful,how hard can they be?

    Lovely plants-I saw one that looks like a bird, called the "bird orchid" would you believe! Or Pterostylis barbata.
    Have a good weekend.

    Hello Suki,
    I like your photos especially the dark red orchid, I just brought my first slipper orchid too last week, looks like your pink one in the photo, but it’s a white and green in colour, hope you can come over for a visit, love to hear your comment. Have a good weekend. Mei

    Good Morning Suki,
    Thank you for inviting me to your friends list, love to be friend with you and your lovely flowers, my hubby brought me the first orchid about two years ago and I fall in love with orchids, they are expensive, so every time if I saw another orchid are reduced and unusual they may end up on my windowsill, last one I paid £4.99 down from £13.99 just after x’mas, hope they’ll flower better next season. Love to hear from you again, have a good day. Mei
