    Well, probably not quite "intruders" in the conventional sense. These insects were living there before I came and designated that piece of land as my farm.

    Hence I am the intruder, hahaha.

    I try to keep the environment "organic" as much as possible. No insecticides unless it is scale and others like that. I don't cry over half-eaten floral parts.

    No fertilizers like 10-10-10 because most of it ends up in the ground and gets washed away with run-off water to wreck the ecosystem in rivers and estuaries.

    Thank you, ischel.

    There are two Dendrobium secundum var alba plants. One of them has a slight pink blush, and is probably not a true albinistic variety. A semi - alba, as some others would call it. But, I had not bothered to explain.

    I'm sure they don't mind an intruder like you in their habitat. I wouldn't if I get a constant supply of "yummy" food...lol.

    Back then when I was still in Pampanga, some of our neighbors used water they used to clean up the fish to water their orchids. I don't remember them using fertilizers of any sort either but they manage to bloom their plants.

    another wonderful selection of farm flowers... have to say that the addition of the pollinators provides another level of enjoyment and learning.
