This is my series of orchid collection, took four years to collect this plant and grow them, and each time they flower I record them using my pns fuji cam.
most are from oversea and some bought from local specialist.
This picture are now on hard copy and I scan them lately to share with you guys.
Its mostly recording shot and hope you guy bear with me for iq. (PNS).

The First series is Paphiopedilum, or slipper orchid, as the centre of the flower resemble
a night slipper if view from sideway.

This is a hybrid so I have forgotten its name but you can see its side view resembling
a night slipper.

Hi naynoy, you may be correct as i have not been to the orchid enclosure for a while, our BG does have some of this orchid and this number ten is a species and I think its quite possible that what you say correct.
Thanks for your time viewing.

pic 18 This is a hybrid and is a dream for most orchid specialist to cross and create a white valacia and till now 50 years later it was never so successful as you can see there is still some yellow patches found on some petal.:(



pic 19 This is the only near successful creation but the petal have some green tips.





The following are common orchid that I grow and collect.

pic 20 this orchid consist of many individual flower on one stall, there grow in a nicely arrange pattern to form a larger flower so as to attract pollination for survival.
The are a few of this orchid that employ this method as you can see later along my series.



pic 21 This another orchid that behave like pic 20.

pic 24 This plant has very tiny flower and produce thousand of flower in one season sorry for the poor photo as the flower is too small to view.



pic 25 This is another tiny orchid sorry forgot the name found in thailand. the whole plant measured approximately 4 to 5 cm long and the flower around 5 mm.

Hi pikapig,

I have stop collecting orchid a while ago, its very difficult as I live in HDB, I spend alot on maintaining this plant through artificial lighting,wind,humidity control, ph, and loving care of course.
I not have a few left and soon non will survive as does not put time in it.
Your bellina looks good too, competition grade.
Nice to know you are also an enthusiast.
Thanks for sharing your comment,also thanks for the invitation to view your collection.

my bellina took me awhile to groom...guess the nicer ones haven bloom yet...
im staying in hdb too..so happen my plants are customised to the weather here...recently due to sun shift, i placed a net over them..and think it solved the prob...

ya i see that most of ur orchids are quite demanding for lights!
phals just need place tat are airy....i still think dendrobiums and phals are the easiest to handle....

nice collections u got there!:)
