Orchid Expo - Nepenthes

Each year during the Fête du Citron there is an orchid exhibition in the Palais de l'Europe. Every size and sort of orchid you can imagine is on display and for sale. These Nepenthes always fascinate me. The ones in the last photo are beginning to dry out - no surprise after three weeks and also perhaps someone forget to spray them ...


Chaque année, pendant la Fête du Citron, il y a une exposition d'orchidées au Palais de l'Europe. Des orchidées de toutes sortes et de toutes tailles que vous pouvez imaginer sont exposées ou à la vente. Ces Nepenthes me fascinent toujours. Celles de la dernière photo commencent à se dessécher - ce qui n'est pas une surprise au bout de trois semaines et peut-être aussi qu'on a oublié de les pulvériser ...


  1. Gosh Jilly, I haven't seen orchids like this before, they almost look like some alien pods or something!

  2. Odd orchid. Are they not also some kind of carnivorous plant, with that deep pocket? I think so.

  3. Interesting plants...nicely shot macro as well!!!
