73 and still gardening

Interesting teres

Being popular doesn’t mean high maintenance. And Vanda teres is one of those popular orchids that are easy to maintain by a novice or jaded gardener. This species is also of great value in the tropical flower trade especially here in the Philippines; flower farms use it to develop a new hybrid and flower shops make it a staple for corsages.  As for me, I simply like to see its rose-colored blossoms (3 inch across) fluttering on its long stalk.
