Inspired by My Own Orchids
As many know, the golden rule for orchid success is to duplicate the plant's natural conditions as closely as possible. As a "traditional gardener" this is what always was so intimidating. In their natural state, most orchids are epiphyte; they grow on other objects, clinging to rough bark or even stone. The showy orchids favored by most people are usually either phalaenopsis hybrids (so-called moth orchids) or dendrobium hybrids. The orchids in this painting are phalaenopsis hybrids.
