Thank you! :D

I started my collection when I was in A-level in 2006. It all started with one plant and kept growing- orchids are an addiction.

I mostly have den-phals (phalenopsis-type dendrobiums)- these are beginner orchids and do well in Karachi as they like 50 to 60% humidity and are light loving so take full sun in winters here and morning sun till 11 in karachi easily. Fast growing and multiple blooms per year; They also bloom on old stems so as bigger the plant, the more flower stems it produces.

I've lately added oncidiums and they are doing well also. Vanda is yet too bloom. Added one catteleya and two phalenopsis this year so anxusily waiting for blooms! Another favourite of mine are brasses/blc alliance/brassocatteleya which I have in purple and yellow! I also have four colours of hoya- they are on buds abhi :)

Your water lilies and orchids are amazing, mashallah. Could you share the complete picture of the container of your water lilies?

Excellent collection, I do grow a few Orchids all are Phals , what potting medium are you using for these . My Phals cannot tolerate much Sun so I got them burnt badly last month. What's your Orchid feed and how often ?
