A Rare Appearance

Growing orchids require a lot of tender, loving care. They need consistent feeding of fertilizer. I used to spray liquid fertilizer every morning. As such, I get blooms after blooms. However, in recent years, I have not been dilligent at growing my orchids. As such, most rotted, died or just didn't bloom. I have only a few small pots left. I have decided not to grow orchids anymore. However, during my recent travel to Manila, I just couldn't resist the temptation of buying a few young plants from the Quiapo market. Old habit dies hard! Ha ha...

This plant that I posted today was purchased from Cebu island in the Phillipines too. The orchids in the Phillipines are beautiful and irresistable. So glad that it gave me a rare bloom this week! Everytime I see it, I just can't help appreciating its elegance!

The flower look so beautiful. No wonder you couldn't resist from not buying it.
I have no luck with orchids, still hoping that I will manage to get them bloom someday.

Hi JC, this orchid looks awesome!! It has a pristine quality to it.Though I don't have much experience in growing Orchids, I can understand how demanding they are and hence at times it becomes too difficult to take their proper care.
Loved the blooms from your edible plants too.
