An Open Garden part 4

Some of these orchids were growing on what were piles of waste wood and coconuts within a strong wire enclosure. This is a great way to recycle old wood and coconuts and has inspired me to adopt this method for growing orchids.


  1. Lovely, lovely orchids. They are gorgeous!

  2. I like the way the orchids are arranged. All grouped so wonderfully together and same type of orchid - good impact :-D

  3. Gorgeous. I can almost imagine the warmth associated with walking through those flowers. I wish I was there!

  4. very lovely pictures. yes, the old wood and coconuts are the ideal growing media for some types

  5. These orchids are very nice looking now because they are still young. Try to get back there 2-3 years from now and compare how they will look by then.

    Some woods are best for these orchids but some are not. The best so far is the trunk of Gliricidia sepium, i dont know how you call it there.

  6. Autumn Belle...I totally agree with you! Thanks for stopping by.

    Stephanie..... I too like the way the orchids are grouped...thanks for stopping by.

    Nicole..... isn't it amazing what we can use from our own back yard?

    Andrea....I really appreciate your insight and knowledge about orchids, Now I know who I can call on for advice. I have been over to you r page and am amazed with the orchids I see there. I have learnt something from you about the best type of wood for orchids. Yes we have this tree growing here and not too far from my house. I will try and get a few pieces to plant.
