Orchids for Garden

Orchids for Garden

I went to a plant nursery yesterday for some flowers and herbs to put on my back balcony. While looking for tomato, mint, and coriander, I found Cypripedium reginae (Showy Lady Slipper Orchid). They are quite beautiful and remind me of the wild orchid in Laos with a shape of a slipper.

I was tempted to buy a few of these orchids for my balcony. I need to do a bit more research to see if they can be put in a pot with no problem or needed to be in the ground with plenty of space. For now, I have to tend to my two tomato plants and a few pots of terrace flowers.

For those of you that are interested in knowing what camera I used to captured the above photos. I used iPhone 5S and pro-camera app to take these photos.
