Denrobium

Ach – I’ve not been updating very often. What can I say – this last month has been very busy.

However, I thought I would share a few pictures of my new purchase which I stumbled across in a random tiny market somewhere off of Silom road. A new beautiful Denrobium hard cane orchid :) Orchids are a fairly recent addition to my favourite things, I love the flowers, but more than that they are plants that you can really fuss over. Different varieties prefer different conditions, so you have to make sure you water them the right amount, give them the right amount of sun etc etc. There’s something exciting about working out the correct formula, creating the right conditions, because when you get it right the plants totally flourish. Aren’t the flowers gorgeous? The leaves are in a little bit of a state, they’ve definitely been eaten by a few things, and are a bit spotty – but not too bad.

Recently, the blooms have been falling off, which is a shame. But, I’ve had orchids for long enough know to realise it just means they are concentrating their energy elsewhere….

I was right! A shoot!

Next purchase… maybe a Vanda… ooooh I love them so much!
