Published November 18th, 2011

WOC - World Orchid Conference

Some 75 stunning displays, comprising thousands of orchids from traditional breeds to exotic contemporary hybrids, have left a deep impression on many who have walked into this alluring landscape. Those who are keen to learn more about orchids will be thrilled by the educational displays here which include rare orchid albums, stamps, pollination videos and information panels. To top off the experience, the MarketPlace within the Show has been a big hit with the visitors with 80 booths selling unique orchid plants and orchid-related products from more than 17 countries.

The Orchidaceae, commonly referred to as the orchid family, is a morphologically diverse and widespread family of monocots in the order Asparagales. Regardless, the number of orchid species equals more than twice the number of bird species, and about four times the number of mammal species. It also encompasses about 6–11% of all seed plants. The largest genera are Bulbophyllum (2,000 species), Epidendrum (1,500 species), Dendrobium (1,400 species) and Pleurothallis (1,000 species).The family also includes Vanilla (the genus of the vanilla plant), Orchis (type genus), and many commonly cultivated plants such as Phalaenopsis and Cattleya. Moreover, since the introduction of tropical species in the 19th century, horticulturists have produced more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivar.

No Orchids For Miss Blandish is a 1939 crime novel by the British writer James Hadley Chase.[1] The novel was influenced by the American crime writer James M. Cain and the stories in the pulp magazine Black Mask.[2] No Orchids for Miss Blandish provoked considerable controversy because of its explicit depiction of sexuality and violence.[2] The novel was a great critical success and was included in the Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century.

Singapore: It has a striking magenta pattern, and large white petals with a golden forked lip, and it's named Doritaenopsis Sir Elton John.The orchid was named after the singer-songwriter, who in his early years was just as colourful as he gave the world hit after hit, from Crocodile Rock to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Philadelphia Freedom.
