CHANGING ORCHID DISPLAYS IN CLOUD FOREST

If you love orchids, you will be in for a treat this September, as the first in a series of changing orchid displays in Cloud Forest will be launched. Orchids belong to the family Orchidaceae, which is one of the largest families of flowering plants in the world. The changing orchid displays in Cloud Forest aim to educate visitors on the various genera of orchids, and showcase their fascinatingly myriad forms and colours.

The first display, which opens on 8 September, focuses on orchids from the genus Cattleya, and will showcase more than 400 of them in the rich colours of fall. Regarded as the “Queen of Orchids”, the Cattleya is also called “Corsage Orchid” due to the significant size of its blooms. With hybridisation widely practised, Cattleya flowers now come in a wide spectrum of colours. Visitors can look forward to seeing varieties such as Rhyncholaeliocattleya Duh’s Fantasy ‘Mellow, an award-winning orchid with deep red blooms and a ruffled dark fuchsia lip marked with yellow grooves, and the Cattleya walkeriana¸ a pretty pink orchid native to Brazil that is known for its large blooms with strong fragrance.
