When mom had a little garden here in our home, she had a variety of orchids. But when we renovated our house, the little garden was gone because we extended the floor area of the house. Now I missed those flowers in the garden. Anyway, if you have planned to plant an orchid, I would suggest buying an orchid that has a flower already because the newly plant or a small plant will not give you flowers right away even if you properly take care of it. It will take few years before it will give you flowers.
In addition to that, some sellers would not tell you the real variety of the orchid if it is still a baby. Sometimes they just assume the color of the orchid. So, it is better to buy with flowers already.
Anyhow, here are the varieties of orchids which I took a few days ago.
