We will be viewing different kinds of orchids today but first, let me give you a quick trivia: did you know that Singapore’s national flower is an orchid? It is called Vanda Miss Joaquim. ⭐

It was named in memory of Miss Agnes Joaquim who successfully crossed Vanda hookeriana and Vanda teres in her garden in 1893. It was said that the orchid was chosen because of its resilience and year-round blooming quality. Also, the flower is mainly associated with hybrids, and for Singapore, it symbolizes its multicultural heritage.

Interesting, isn’t it? Come on in, let’s take a closer look at the flowers around. 😎
