Orchid

I guess I’m in love with orchid now…

I have four orchids in my house *actually those are my sister’s, since she bought it. But I claimed it as mine too anyway, coz I also involved myself nurturing it :P* and two of ’em are blooming.

And they just makes me falling in love with ’em everyday… olove

Here they are… so pretty and tempting…

my Dendrobium 😀

Actually I am not quite sure about their name. My sister said that the violet one is “Anggrek Bulan”, and when I’m googling around, I found its latin name is Phalaenopsis Amabilis. But I totally forgot what the white one name is ^_^! So, again I am googling and found this site: http://www.orchidsindonesia.com/ and matching it’s picture database with my photo *hope I am not making a mistake 😛* the latin name is Coelogyne Flexuosa Rolfe, and it said that its distribution are around East Java, Bali and possibly Sumatra. So I assume that’s my orchid name. But I am not sure what its Indonesia name is hehe…

*I was wrong; I didn’t have any Coelogyne, but it actually is a Dendrobium. Thanks to kikorangi for the information ^^

Aren’t they pretty…? And of course they way much much prettier if you see it with your own eyes, since the picture were taken with my cellphone’s camera ^_*

Oh and when I was googling about orchid, I also found that there is an orchid garden here in Bali: Bali Orchid Garden… Ouwwww… I want to go there… Take me there… take me there… ohirun khekhekhe…

    Your ‘Coelogyne flexuosa Rolfe’ is actually a Dendrobium (species or hybrid).

      haha… yes. After comparing the image of Dendrobium and other Coelogyne, I guess I’ve made a mistake ^^;
      Thank you for your information Kikorangi…
