Chinese New Year Orchids
Dendrobium Orchids are one of the hottest selling Chinese New Year orchids for our farm. These locally produced orchids can be selected fresh from the farm. Dendrobium orchids are generally inexpensive and last perfectly well through the Chinese New Year. Dendrobium Orchids can be quickly grown to bloom again with proper care in Singapore’s climate. You can find Dendrobium Mix Pots & Arrangements here; https://www.tohgarden.com/dendrobiumarrangements.
Phalaenopsis Orchid is another popular hot selling Chinese New Year Orchids during the festive. Most Phalaenopsis orchids available in Singapore are imported from Taiwan and housed here for sales. Phalaenopsis orchids last well indoors and even better in an airconditioned environment. Phalaenopsis orchids can be grown locally after the initial bloom, albeit they require three to four months of cooling at night to bloom again. Tropical fragrant Phalaenopsis orchids have smaller flowers and don’t need this cooling at night. You can find Phalaenopsis arrangements here https://tohgarden.com/phalaenopsisarrangements.
Commercial Vanda orchids are known for their large beautiful flowers. Some Vanda hybrids have to be grown under shade, whilst others are in full sun on the farm. In general, Vanda orchids with large strap leaves (flat leaves with a large surface area) are grown under shade. On the other hand, Vanda orchids with spiny leaves and narrow leaves are grown under full sun. Most Vanda orchids produced locally and flowers often in Singapore’s weather. Vandaceous arrangements can be found here. https://tohgarden.com/vandaceousarrangements.
Oncidium orchids are found both in the tropical and cool climate. Oncidiums are commonly known as the dancing lady orchids as the orchid blooms have the shape of a lady in a dancing gown swaying in the breeze. Oncidium arrangements can be found here https://tohgarden.com/oncidiumarrangements for your selection.
Cattleya orchids are also one of the favourites of many due to its spectacular large blooms. Most Cattleya orchids generally only last between 2-3 weeks for blooming time. Many Cattleya orchids with large blooms have fragrance and require cooling similar to Phalaenopsis to bloom. Cattleya hybrids with smaller flowers can usually bloom all year round in Singapore.
Tips on picking up your Orchids
A little tip when picking up your orchids. The best time to purchase orchids is around 2-4 weeks before the Chinese New Year’s arrival, depending on blooms’ maturity. Cool orchid species like Cattleya, Cymbidiums, Nobile Dendrobiums & Phalaenopsis tend to bloom faster in hot temperatures than tropical varieties like Dendrobiums. So do place them somewhere cool if you wish for them to bloom slower. With proper care and monitoring, the orchids will reach close to perfect bloom towards the festive.
