My orchids - mainly miniature


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I obtained some interesting orchids during the last months, so I thought I'd start my topic to share some pictures.

I grow most of them in my highland terrarium, and a few in my lowland terrarium.

 

Here are my "orchids balconies" in the highland terrarium:

As you might remember from my other post, I have a Masdevallia princeps. This one is flowering since early March!!!

You can see the receptacle where the former flowers were attached. There are 2 floral hamps, producing flowers alternatively. I just love it!

And here is the first real miniature flowering: Masdevallia herradurae.

A bigger one but not less delicate, and with a wonderful smell: Aerangis biloba.

I know I should wait for the other flowers to open on this one, but I couldn't wait!

Again some beautiful orchids.

The second plant is really miniature but nice.

 

After i lost all my plants a few months ago i think i should start again growing some orchids.

 

Best regards,

Daniel

Great looking plants there Vincent, and really well photographed - well done!

I must see about growing these myself as I love miniaturised things (am a fan of terrestrial Utricularia).
