Millions of orchids being thrown away daily

Post by Zidane » April 20, 2020, 11:46 am

Millions of orchids are being cut and thrown away daily in Thailand, the world's largest exporter, as demand for them plummets due to the Covid crisis.
The orchids either sent abroad or used locally at places like hotel's or for special occasions have seen demand fall by 95%.
For now growers are concentrating on keeping the farms open hoping for an upturn in business later in the year.
(Bloomberg)

I like orchids but quite difficult and/or unpredictable to grow.


Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Boil them up and make scent

What will it feel like if I put orchids in my bong and smoke it?
Quality is best done first
