    Bai Orchid and Butterfly Farm-tastic!

    December 28, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We visited an orchid and butterfly farm in Mae Rim with Grandma and Grandfather - it was full of different kinds of orchids, with their roots hanging out of the ground. These orchids don’t need soil - they need light, moisture and air to grow. The middle of the flower, called the column, can look really funny - they are that way to attract insects so that their pollen can be carried to other orchids. The butterflies were really cool too. One landed on my sister’s hand when she was holding the phone so she took a photo of it with her nose. The Bai farm makes jewelry out of their orchids by putting lacquer on the petals, then outlining them in gold.
