Merry Christmas 2015

Toh Garden wishes all a Merry Christmas 2015! Found this very old out of print poster recently from a very old farm here in Singapore. This photo was taken some time in the 1970s or 1980s advertising Singapore as probably the most surprising tropical island paradise with two local ladies in the midst of a plantation of Mokara Bibi, a variety of colourful orchid that’s very popular with the locals back then. This variety is however probably lost over the years. Decided to use it for this year’s Christmas poster as I find it rather cool and nostalgic. =P

Below are some orchids planters/bouquet/table pieces that are available for Christmas. Alternatively, if you are visiting our farm, you may select your orchids directly from our crop and have our staff pot them into ceramic pots of your choice to bring home!

  1. Hi sliverelf,

    I have got what you call a orchid fever have been running around singapore nursery to buy orchid and so far i kill them all. Now I’m left with about 10 of them, have also been switching medium from charcoal moss to even pelite. Have even when to your nursery before i suppose last year around feb or march. Currently i do not know what went wrong they have growth leave but no flower some just refuse to growth. Dont know about their specimen some are those from ikea some i guess the wild one. Would appreciate a lot if you can guide me along or my hopeless quest. Definitely if you carry some exotic specimen i would love to get my hand on them too.
    Best regards

  2. Hi Janson,

    First of all, you have to make sure that you are growing the correct type of orchids.
    If you are trying to grow temperate orchids in the tropics, you will have a hard time flowering them.
    Most temperate orchids require day and night temperature differences.
    For example, for Phalaenopsis you will require day and night temperature difference of min 7-15 degree celsius for a period of 3 months to induce blooming.
    The greater the temperature difference, they better the blooms. (longer and thicker, better substenance).

    Next will be knowing how to care for the type of orchid you have.
    Have you referred to our orchid care section for more information?
