I hope you are having a beautiful Holy Week and to make it more beautiful, enchant us all with your lovely flowers.
My contribution is this beautiful hanging Vanda orchid, which I saw hanging on the walls of common florist boutique a few days ago.
It is the first time I see a hanging orchid with its long tendrils of roots dangling down.
I admired the brilliant colors and the large shape of the orchid flowers but it was very expensive and I decided to read about it first. I am glad I did because I found out that they are definitely tropical orchids and difficult plants.
Now I know, in the wild they grow on trees with their roots in the air.
Indoors, if hanging they will require soaking every day and they need lot of sunlight.
As gorgeous these orchids are and as much I should like to have one, with half a year cold weather, I couldn't offer them the proper care.
