Our bell orchid that were grown on guava trees are flowering! The bell orchid is also frequently called tiger orchid (a misnomer), due to the similarities in colours of its flower to that of the tiger, however it has flowers much smaller than the actual tiger orchid, Grammatophyllum speciosum.
This is the third time that these plants have flowered and this season, there’s one with a magnificent fourteen stalks of flowers, one stalk just withered but with thirteen stalks, it still just as spectacular! =) We’ve been growing these species for more than three years and each time it flowers, the number of flower stalks increases as the plant matures.
We will be making some seedpods and selling some of it this time to locals in Singapore. Do take note that seedpod formation takes a period of 3 – 6 months.
