Hi all, some images of mainly broms. A massive market, north of Chang Mai for any thing horticultural, spanning across a number of city blocks. Needless to say we only managed to look through part of it over a 3 hr period in the heat before retreating to air conditioning.

You right there Kayleen, Markets were fascinating!. Could have brought some for our Malaysian garden but brought teracota hanging pots instead so no space left in hand luggage. Here's another round of images.

Hi Everyone.

John I remember when Chanin previously posted pic's of some of the brom markets in Thailand, they made me "drool" and it seems you're taking up where he left off (excuse me while I wipe my mouth). Great looking plants, what are the prices like in comparison with NZ?

I noticed in the third picture in the previous batch there seems to be a name tag stuck in beside the flower head. Is this common practice over there or is it just at the markets with some of the plants for sale? It seems like a good idea, as it would eliminate the need for “would be purchasers” to pull the name tag from the pot to read it and put it back in the wrong place as often happens.

Good stuff! And keep them coming.

All the best, Nev.

Hi all, Nev in general most did not have names but in one outlet the tags of some as you have spotted were between the leaves all in the vase. Also the plants seemed well cared for and all had better colour . each outlet was about 10 x 10 meters in area and there would be over 1000 outlets, nothing done a small scale. I know we are all generally interested in all things to do with gardens so here's a small taste of what else is at these markets, we went especially to find domd nice hanging pots and we weren't disappointed.

Hi everyone.

John - As well as being great growers of orchids and bromeliads, the Thai people also have a "magical skill" when it comes to clay pot manufacture and the imaginative things they use them for.

Chanin told us once that the fancy pots with the holes in the sides are primarily made or growing orchids. Although they look attractive and the orchids grow very well in them, he said there are problems removing the plants at re-potting time as the roots are growing through the holes anchoring the plant so firmly so that it’s almost impossible to remove them from the pot and in most cases the pot has to be destroyed. He said this isn’t a big problem though as pots are plentiful and very cheap (that was twelve years ago) I don’t know how expensive they are now, maybe you can tell us.

I'm not trying to seal your thread John but just thought while you're having trouble uploading, I'd post the following pictures of some of the unusual things the Thai people do with these pots as well as growing beautiful orchids and bromeliads in them.

Hi all . All types of clay/ceramic pots are here in gardens, the issue is to find them for sale then of course there is the problem of how to carry them. We searched a number of places and have bubble wrap packed 2 carry on luggage bags of smaller pots. Nev in glazed are all very cheap, some as little as $1, NZ incl hanger which we have discarded.
Yes some amazing displays using clay pots. Saw this sort of thing at Nong Norch , south Thailand when we visited 10 years back. All those pots are hand wired together, a lot of work!
The clay hanging pots are mainly used for Orchids which are very popular in Thailand but they have realised that bromaids grow well in them also. I have images but internet is very unreliable here.
Finally managed upload 1 image from airport.

Hi Everyone.

John – Wow! Another feast of “eye candy”. What a great lot of pictures, it’s the next best thing to being there.

Pictures one and two put a whole new meaning on the term vertical culture, I don’t think they could squeeze another plant on those vertical walls if they tried as they’re all growing “bumper to bumper” so to speak.

I find the plant in picture seven very interesting; it looks like a variegated form of Neo. ‘Pink Spider’ or something similar. If it isn’t that I think it would certainly have to have either Neo. Pendula or eleutheropetala in its parentage.

Variegated plants still seem to be the “flavour of the month” with some great examples in pictures four, five and six.

Certainly an interesting group of pictures and thanks for sharing them with us.

All the best, Nev.

Wow! I am so looking forward to going there in November. We are visiting many growers of broms & a few orchids growers.
Hopefully I will grab a couple of pots to bring home.

Think they would notice that elephant on the plane? Cheesy Cheesy

Hi everyone.

Kayleen - I'm sure you'll really enjoy yourself in Thailand as they have beautiful orchids as well as bromeliads and I'm told the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens are something not to be missed as they have a fantastic show of bromeliads as well as other beautiful attractions.

I've never been there, and I'll never get there now, but I'd like to share a few pictures that my "brom. friend" Chanin Thorut took and which he previously posted on the Garden Web Forums a few years ago and which he kindly gave me permission to share with my other brom friends.

Sorry but I don't have any names.

In this first picture, the "heart" is made up of hundreds of Cryptanthus plants which seems unusual when you think that Crypts are terrestrial plants. I don't know the name of this particular Crypt. but they seem to be grown en masse all throughout the gardens.

The basis for this amazing display is made from a Coir Peat shape and the plants are skillfully attached to that.

It's not until you look closer that you see the clever method used to skillfully arranged and attach them to the Coir Peat frame work of the heart.

All the best, Nev.

Yes Nong Nooch is well worth a visit, you do need to allow a whole day at least. It I
Is located about 30 main outside Pattaya. Can catch a local bus or private taxi to get there or better still advise to stay there as Pattaya is a dump! They did not sell any plants or pots when we visited 10 years back.
We have shown the kham Tiang Market as these are kind of outlets in Thailand to look for what's for sale. You can also try pottery villages but they are generally by word of month, not by google. We found the flower market via the Singapore face book.
