Lotus (Thai clay)
This is a floating arrangement I tried with thai clay ,for the floating green material I used some "pistia" floating foliage from my garden.
This orchid is called VANDA MISS JOQUIM a hybrid between Vanda hookeriana and Vanda teres is hardy and free flowering. It was described by the first director of the Singapore Botanic Gardens Mr H.N. Ridley in 1893, who named it after Agnes Joaquim. Ridley wrote that the plant was the results of a cross made by Miss Joaquim.It is a national flower of Singapore.
Features Of Vanda Miss Joaquim
A strong inflorescence of Vanda Miss Joaquim may carry up to 12 buds, usually with four flowers open at a time. Each flower is about 5 cm across and 6 cm tall, and as is the case with its parents, the petals are twisted around so that the back surface faces front. It is free-flowering.
Purple and white are common color for this orchid Since I had done the "Cattleya" in the same purple color I do not want to repeat I tried "white" but it looks dull. I tried attaching to the tree bark to make it more appealing to the eyes.
Thankyou for stopping by
Have a nice day!
