What happens to orchids in nature if left alone??? Story within.

Well I must apologise for not having written Part three on orchid reproduction, I shall write it in the early hours of the morning.
But I have had a very busy day today.
I had already written this article, to load up and thought it may interest the orchid
This is the common Thai orchid, it is parasitic, so if you strap a plant to a tree
with good bark
And leave it alone, the root will penetrate the bark of the tree.
Strap it high in the tree, if you live in a warm climate and Bobs your uncle.
It will react as nature had intended it to, and grow wild.
I was lucky here as there was this young lady sitting there, so you can see the size of
the plant
And it’s amazing blooms.
Bless you all and be happy, for there are many worldwide that are suffering and far less fortunate than we are!!!

Walkabout John Asia.

    I didn't know that they can grow to such big plants! It looks a little bit strange and fascinating, too.
    A marvellous shot mate!

    See you, David

    You are right perfectly, John. History is very interesting.
    I didn't see ever so many Orchids on a place. They are simply splendourful.
