Terrestrial Orchid from the jungle of Papua

This is my drawing of a terrestrial orchid flower which I saw when I was hiking with some tourists in the jungle near Manokwari city. In nature they grow in places where there is enough sunlight such as along the forest edges, the logging road or the sides of rivers.
Terrestrial Orchid

I saw them in three colors: red, pink and white. They were very common in the area whose soil does not have a lot of humus and mostly contains limestones. The height of this Spathoglottis plicata flower plant is around 1 meter. It is taller in area that receives lower sunlight. Perhaps, the plant tries to get more sunlight by growing taller.
If you like the art, you can buy it online printed on various products at this link: terrestrial orchid products. One of them that has become my favorite item is the teapot.

In addition to this flower, you can also see other artworks offered in the website.
