Did you know there are over 25,000 documented orchid species in the world? Add the numerous hybrids to the list and the number could reach hundreds of thousands. These brightly coloured orchids from a local show is a fine example of their diverse beauty. Seen here are Vascostylis orchids, a popular intergeneric hybrid between Ascocentrum, Vanda and Rhychostylis. The pink one in the foreground is Vascostylis Pine Rivers ‘Pink’.
