Located inside the Botanical Gardens, the National Orchid Garden in Singapore is home to thousands species of orchids ! Unfortunately, it was raining during our visit, so it was tricky to take pictures with my non-waterproof camera, while holding an umbrella…
This place was amazing, I think I can say it is one of the best gardens I’ve ever visited. It was well maintained and colourful. The entrance fee was relatively cheap, I think it was around 5$.
I really love the slipper orchid, the one that looks like a pitcher. The pouch is a trap for insects, and when they fall in it, they are forced to climb on top of it and all the process contributes to the fertilization of the flower. It is a bit complex, but on this website, it is well explained with macro pictures and everything ! I recommend stopping by if you are interested.
