The displays of tropical flowers and orchids were quite simply beyond anything I have ever seen anywhere.
If you get a chance to visit Kew Gardens in the next couple of weeks I strongly recommend that you take the opportunity.
Vandas are epiphites something I did not appreciate when I first had one so I watered it to death. You can see the green roots on these plants also photosynthesise.
As you enter the greenhouse you are confronted with towering displays of orchids.
But its not just orchids that were on show there was a profusion of other plants too.
