The 2011 World Orchid Conference opened in Singapore today, and the public displays are already attracting thousands of visitors. There are orchids from all over the world, as well as market stalls and eating places. We are also launching our new book The Essential Guide to Growing Orchids in the Tropics, and will be signing copies for buyers. Dr Chia Tet Fatt will be here with me for most of the day, so if you are in Singapore, come on down to Marina Bay if you need some free advice on growing your orchids.
