Fish's cheek has a flower

This is one of the species in Cambodia. It is used for salad. Some Cambodians call it 'fish's cheek' and some call it 'heart species'. I grow it in my balcony garden and I just knew that it has a flower and its flower is cute.

Simple way to take care of orchid

I like gardening. I like gardens of vegetables, fruit trees and flowers.

I have prepared my balcony to be a garden, but because it is a small space, I cannot grow them all.

I have planted some vegetables and fruit trees.

I am thinking of growing flowers. I had grown roses and sunflowers but I failed because I didn't know about planting.

Now I choose to put orchids in my balcony garden.

It is easy. Just buy from the market and put it in the space.

One thing I am learning is to take care of them.

I read a lot of documents and watched videos on how to take care of it.

There are many ways, but I choose to use simple way:

- Put them outside home but under shade.

- Water them once in five days by soaking their roots into water for three minutes if the weather is not hot and five minutes if the weather is hot.

I don't think growing orchids is complicated like in the document or video, but I don't deny it is a little bit hard to look after. However, I believe if I love them truly and work hard, I can take good care of it.
