    Congratulations to Ricky for this honor. He is in great company because the other orchids named after important people were Nelson Mandela and Princes Diana. And yet again the stupid media managed to twist his words. He didn’t say “Hello sexy” to the plant. He said “Hi beautiful. how are you? you are so nice…You’re supposed to talk to your plants, right?” What a great sense of humor he has!

    Yes, I read the article and he said : “Hi, beautiful………! I also talk to my plants and flowers.

    How sweet! The first tourist spot for me in Singapore is Botanic Gardens to see Ricky Martin Orchid! Does anybody know if there is any possibility to buy it through the EBay or somewhere else?
