Zaleha Orchid & Nursery

7.12.2010




I am so glad that I managed to check out this nursery which is in Ijok and I must say that this is one interesting find! The nursery is located in the spacious compound of the home of the family/owner.

When I was there, I was first greeted by an attendant and later by the owner's daughter, Zaharahima Tohar, who came home while I was browsing the plants here.



Zaleha Orchid & Nursery was founded by Zaharahima's mother, Puan Zaleha, some 13 years ago who started growing orchids as a hobby and soon turned it into a business/nursery.



The nursery specialises in orkid kampung, vanda and mokara species. You can just visit the nursery at anytime (as long as the operators are around!). For orchid lovers, if you are somewhere near Ijok or Ijok itself, don't miss this orchid farm. They sell orkid kampung mostly in stem cuttings (not rooted) - hence costing less!



Plant Variety Rating: 4.0 | There are lots of wonderful orchids and some ornamental plants.

I really love the orkid kampung that I saw right at the entrance. They have planted the orchids in a row, forming a hedge and some in large pots forming a tower. Many were in bloom and it just made me think that I should have this orchid planted in my garden perimeter as well. One amazing thing about orkid kampung is that they do not need any shade!



The rest of the orchids are of mostly of dendrobium, vanda and mokara species.




The ornamental plants, anthruium, aglaonema, begonia, staghorn fern, moss rose, fern, rambut puteri mayang sari were looking really good as well.



Last but not least is the desert rose. They have big and medium-size plants. I just love how they use the moss rose to cover the base.



Plant Condition Rating: 4.5 | All orchids and ornamental plants are in really good condition.



Layout Rating: 4.5 | They have orchids in bloom right at the front, all ready for customers to pick up, with the farm situated at the back. It was so easy to move around as the plants are either on racks or hung. They are all arranged in rows and pretty neat.



Garden Products Rating: 1.0 | I didn't see any pots or garden accessories but they have fertilisers for orchids.
