Following my discovery of the Penang Slipper Orchid Colony in December 2014, I made a point to at least track down and see this orchid in full bloom. Finally after 7 months the wait is over. One plant in the colony was caught in full bloom. Enjoy the pictures!
Slipper Orchids are knows as “Slipper” Orchids because of their shoe shaped flowers.
A thriving colony. Young Slipper Orchids everywhere
May she remain sheltered from the threats of development and the greed of collectors.
