    Smile Paphiopedilum primulinum

    This little fellow keeps on flowering since its first bloom in May. It's still going strong despite the flower is a bit smaller than before. One bad news, the lease of growing area will be ended in October, I have to look for a place to accommodate my orchids. A common problem for all Hongkongers; space .

    Luke- It looks very healthy! Sorry about the grow area turmoil! All mine are at home except for about 20 that live in leased greenhouse space.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I bring 15 home and house them in my 2'x5' balcony. The rest are 'adopted' by my friend who owns an open space which is 40 minutes drive from my home. I have to go there daily(by bus) in order to take care of the plants. A new job after retirement! Photos show orchids hanging in the balcony. Every inch is utilized.
