Someone close to me sent me some photos today of her mom's orchids in her yard in the Philippines, and I was amazed...Hope you are also.

Here is one...

Wow, great to see them growing outdoors, and in trees, as they should be!

Orchids are one genera I have not done much with. I have only failed to save a rescued mini Phal.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, indeed the Philippines has ideal growing conditions for many orchids, and many are native to the islands. I love seeing them growing on the trees myself.

Frugal, orchids are technically many genera in one family

Thanks Teen,

I have always struggled with taxonomic vocabulary, despite going to school for Wildlife Biology! No excuses! Keep me on my toes!

Oh Chris!! Amazing and I'll admit, I am a huge bit impartial to these plants!

Love it and thank you for being so thoughtful.

Thanks for the pics, they're gorgeous! I've had orchids for many years now, and appreciate seeing familiar "faces" in a more natural setting than I can provide.
