Nowadays, nurseries have come out with new versions and hybrids of a lot of flowers not only for orchids. Look at these two blooms, same type of flowers but different version. They are both morning glory, one is the normal size, while the other is a tiny miniature! Could not resist buying the plant last Hari Raya, although I have the normal one growing wild on my fence, as the tiny mini blooms look so cute and adorable.
Some features are a bit different though between the two. The normal size morning glory the flower form a long tube so that the stamens are concealed inside the tube. The bees, the main polinators, will have to go half way inside, in order to pollinate the flowers or collect the nectar. While the miniatures, the stamens are right outside the petals and I think the bees are definitely bigger than the flower!

However, both flowers will only last for 2 days the most, will change to pinkish/light purple around the edges, close off their petals and drop off. In order to have lasting blooms on the plant, they have to be 'deadhead' just like petunia, in order for new buds to form. To maintain the overall structure of the plant, you have to make sure the creeper entwine each other and form into a ball. What else the nurseries will come out with next!
