Barrys Gourmet Garden Orchid

Barrys Gourmet Garden Orchid

Orchid of Barry Gourmet & Raw

It is not uncommon when I am setting up my camera and still life for my Recipe photo shoot that I get distracted by something else in my Thai Tropical Garden. In this case the natural brilliance of Orange and Yellow Red across the garden beckoned me for further investigation.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a Wild Orchid growing on the trunk of my Bougainvillea tree that in its own right is also a real show stopper in the exotic tropical flower department. I did not place this Orchid there so it had to be a wild one.My garden is Permaculture in design. Permaculture is when you mix Edible plants in with non edible ornamentals. This is good practice for Organic Gardening as the use of Chemicals ,are not necessary what so ever.
With careful planting the harmful insects are confused,but the beneficial insects like praying mantis, and birds can keep your garden in check.
When I do see a problem with infestation or disease I try to figure out the cause of the problem first. It could be for many reasons like the plant is in the wrong place, too much sun , or not enough sun, over or under watering, the soil is the wrong type , or it needs more natural amendments.

When I am pruning this is usually when things get discovered in my garden , and all it takes is to mechanically remove the infected leaves or cut some branches to be disposed of separately. Do not compost diseased or infected prunings.
I find that Orchids do not need any pruning, these incredible exotics just do fine on their own.
South East Asia has so many wild and cultivated Orchids of every description and they are quite hardy to take care of. The flower petal feels leathery to the touch and the leaves are dark green and grow in long clusters upwards , with each leaf long and narrow forming a point at the end.
Further below are trailing long vine like roots that need no soil . In fact Orchids thrive on other host living plants like trunks of trees and branches and even rocks. The Orchids roots rap around boulders , rap around and cling to branches and tree trunks living off the nourishment of their host plant. The Thai Orchid also absorbs oxygen and nutrients from the air ,the rain, and all Orchids of course appreciate a good misting from a human as well.

For me Orchids are low maintenance beauties that do just fine in a partially shaded area. The flowers that grow in clusters across long stems ,can last for weeks in brilliant color, and after the flowers wither and die the plant is in dormancy for a few weeks until the right conditions set in and then the orchid blooms all over again.I think of Orchids as Surprise Plants because you never know when they will emerge and burst forth with brilliant colors.

Orchids are prized plants, and some rare endangered species can fetch a lot of money. But many others are just so beautiful and affordable in many the the Thai Nurseries around Phuket Island where I live that having a Tropical Thai Garden with out a few clinging exotic orchids would be unthinkable to me.But even if you do not have a garden , it does not matter as Orchids do not take up much space and can be placed any where in your home for natural beauty and decoration. Good places would be your balcony, terrace,porch,veranda,near a window,or just about anywhere with air and water and an organic substrate for the plant to hold onto will do.I hope that you enjoy viewing this Orchid of Barry Gourmet & Raw as much as I did?
