    Default National Orchid Garden

    After the last failed trip to find orchid in the wild. I decided to do something safer. I headed to the Singapore Botanic Gardens and headed straight to the National Orchid Garden. If I cannot find orchids here, I'll pack all my orchids into a box and ship them to Ron and quit this hobby (sorry Ron, i did found orchids).

    note : Picture Intensive - Beware.

    Default Walking towards the greenhouse

    After the VIP garden (which I did not manage to take all the pictures for all the famous people), I strolled along another path towards a dedicated greenhouse. I was distracted by the plants growing along the way.

    Bulbophyllum odoratum

    Thumbs up

    These pictures are so amazing! Thank you for sharing. I especially love all the masses of dendrobiums and the Prosthechea cochleata is very intriguing. I think I need to add a trip to Singapore to my bucket list.
