    Default Thrixpermum centipeda

    The blooms last for only half a day as most Thrixs do but quite floriferous usually after rainy days. No fragrant detected. Quite difficult to photograph. These are the best I could managed.

    I think these are very lovely. I know you said the blooms don't last, but how often do they bloom?, and it looks like there are a lot of them. Thanks for posting these Mazlan. AL

    This is a prolific bloomer. I would say roughly once a month. Thanks for looking and comment Al.

    Glad they blooms so often if this orchid bloom only lasts such a short time. Thanks for sharing it!

    Cheers,
