Two main types of wild orchid and hybrid orchids – the epiphytic orchids commonly grown in pieces of bricks, charcoal, Styrofoam pellets, fern roots and the terrestrial variety which grow and flower on the ground.
The flower structure of orchids gives them their character. Some are tiny and singular. Others are elongated with numerous blossoms.
Wild orchid plants are usually much smaller than their commercially-grown hybrid counterparts. The tiger orchid (the world’s largest at up to 3m) is a random but magnificent sight of hundreds of hefty yellowish flowers pockmarked with maroon blots.
An adjoining section is devoted to the hibiscus, Malaysia’s national flower. This is a small terraced garden, which provides a strikingly colourful panorama of 2,000 of rare and exotic blooms ranging from the single petal variety to multiple petal varieties in a range of colours and shades.
The hibiscus garden has over 40 types of local-hybrid hibiscus and more than 65 types of overseas-hybrid hibiscus. Many unique shapes and colors of hibiscus are found here, each fully bloomed flower last only a day.
