Orchid Garden in Kuala Lumpur

Here is a covered canopy walkway with some nice shaded plants. I like those roots trailing everywhere - it gives a untamed tropical look. The Ground Orchids & the Dendrobium Orchids were placed here (from my earlier post) Also at some intervals, you can spot Golden Shower Orchids in the midst of these greens.

Healthy looking Peace Lily, didn't quite notice the green flowers until they turn white.
This is a lovely Philodendron bipinnatifidum. I admire those octopus like branches both roots & leave stalks, wish I had such a great space to keep all these crawlers everywhere. 10 years ago, this place was arrayed with many types of orchids, now it been replaced with these.

Just at the side top of the canopy walk I found a Plumeria Tree with bunches of this Staghorn Fern plants. It look so grand and complete, often times I find the hanging part torn & damaged but here it has a perfect fronts.

There is also a water lily pond with these blue jewels. This concludes my tour in this Orchid Garden. I guess I have covered a good portion of this garden and hope most of you would have enjoyed most of the pictures here. Its a nice place to hang out & enjoy.
The area is small & you can take a quick stroll around this place within an hour. I had managed to compile all these pictures within 3 trips during my lunch breaks. I would love to go there again but its been raining everyday almost every few hours & when its not raining its very cloudy.
Missed those very sunny days.

There seems to be more ferns and foliage than blooming orchids there at the moment. James, you managed to write so many wonderful posts with photos about the orchids there after visiting the Orchid Garden. When I visited last month, I couldn't get enough orchid pictures to write even a single post. Instead I had more pictures of the monkeys there!

Hello James,

What an incredible garden. The plants look so strange, yet beautiful to my eyes. I appreciate you taking pictures and sharing them.

James David said...

Sue - yes, its a beautiful place

Belle - you are so right.
only few are blooming in the garden
(bamboo orchid,ground orchid & some potted dendrobiums & hybrids)
most of the pictures came from the shops, those which have good blooms to make these post possible, I did spotted those monkeys but I was running late back to my workplace.

Noelle - glad that you have enjoyed them, was concerned whether I was too long a the same topic too long.

James, The garden is spectacular. I will post soon about the orchids and ferns at our Arboretum. I thought of you when I was there.

James David said...

Mary, truly felt honoured when you mentioned that you have thought about me when seeing orchids & ferns. Thank you & look forward to see your Arboretum very much.

The last time I was there, I didn't remember seeing that pond. Those aquatic plants look so wonderful. I must say I also enjoyed myself in the orchid garden. Happy blogging and gardening!

James David said...

Stephanie - the pond is at the top level, you can arrive here by taking the stairs where you will see the philodendron & the hanging orchid plants (from my pictures) reaching there you will see the Giant Orchid plant & another water fountain (17th pic).
Also, there is another small stairway that descend from here to the orchid shop area, but becareful when using this as they are very slippery.
Do go visit here when you go again.

Stephanie said...

Ok. Btw, I have problem with the current rainy days too. My garden is always wet! Take care.

Wendy said...

Hi James,

There is an award for you on my blog. I hope that you will accept it but I won't be offended if you don't. You may have already received it, but you have been so supportive and I wanted you to know that I really appreciate it.

Beautiful photos as usual! That Staghorn Fern is outstanding! The grandest one I have ever seen, which I wouldn't have seen if you hadn't shone it to us. Lovely post, thank you.
