    Default Growing Area: Filipino Style

    Hell Guys, I just want to share my grow area here in the Philippines. As you know, we are in the tropics. The monsoon rains prevail from July to December and then it's summer time from Feb to May. SInce it's already July, the plants are doing better, they're rejoicing! (summer here could be very unforgiving).

    The pictures will also contain non orchids. I will keep this updated from time to time.

    What is the name of the little yellow dancing ladies in the second set of pictures? I think I have the same one. Can you post a close up?

    That is a beautiful garden and grow area for your orchids. Love your bromeliads. I see that you have a Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise) blooming so your place must be cooler than the lowlands. The plant in the first picture is Espiscia cupreata 'Frosty' or by its common name of Silver Leaf Flame Violet. There are a few varieties of Episcia cupreata with different coloured leaves and flowers.
