Orchids are symbols of love and beauty

Phalaenopsis
On the way to the floating market in  Damnoen Sadauak, we stopped at the Samut Songkhram Coconut Sugar Farm where these exotic orchids grow in their garden. 

According to feng shui practices, orchids are symbols of perfection, happiness, love and beauty. So when someone gives you orchids, you are loved! 

Orchids bloom once a year and to see them bloom in your home is quite rewarding.  

Cattleya
Cattleyas need a lot of light and thrive in dry climates. When growing at home, they should be placed near the window that receives a lot of sunlight.

Vanda
Vandas and dendrobium orchids are among the most widely used orchids for leis. They are so exquisite that wearing one is pretty special. They are not fragrant and I personally can't wear it for too long.
