Of course, my main intention is not to buy anything but to take photos. As expected in orchid shows here, the more famous Vanda and Catleya are in exhibit. The pride of the country, the waling-waling or Vanda sanderiana is prominently displayed together with the more unique colors of the famous hybrids. What is also awesome are the endemic species which are in full bloom. These endemics are sought after for collections, which endangered their presence in the wild. I don't miss any orchid show in the city, but i still saw many species for the first time. They are really awesome! Even if I already gave up my orchids, seeing these exhibit make me miss my lost collections.
These orchids are mounted overhead on natural trees in the park, and we have to look up to appreciate their beauty in their supposedly normal habitat.
This looks like a wall of Trichoglottis sp. Trichoglottis is a genus found in Eastern Asia mainly the Philippines.
