Orchid Extravaganza Floral Display Part 2

The five most popular variety of orchids are:

Phalaenopsis orchid. Also known as “moth orchids” the Phalaenopsis is exceptionally popular among beginners because it’s one of the easiest to look after.

 

 

 

Cattleya orchid. The Cattleya orchid just loves a touch of natural light, and it is recommended you place them in a conservatory or a greenhouse – as they need heat and humidity, between 60-70%, to flourish during the daylight hours.

 

 

 

Vanda orchids. Needing little care and the ultimate outdoor plants, the Vanda orchid can normally be found in a hanging basket outside many homes. The most important tip is that overwatering will kill them, so go easy on the juice!

 

 

 

Paphiopedilum orchid. The Paphiopedilum orchid only provides one vibrant bloom that’s sure to stand out. It requires a great deal of sunlight throughout the day, but not placed in direct sunlight as this may cause them to burn.

 

 

 

Miltonia orchid. The Miltonia orchid impresses by their stunning bloom and a gorgeous aroma. To ensure this orchid remains beautiful, it’s important that you keep it out of direct sunlight as they thrive in low light.

 

 

 

The orchids display will continue to Wednesday, 22 August 2018 from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm daily at the Flower Dome.
