When we flew back from Singapore last year the airline crew brought back boxes of orchids. A much better idea.
Having seen what we grow in the UK as house plants growing to full size in the gardens of Sydney I vowed never to try and grow stunted versions of those plants in my home. I even think growing tree ferns in this country is wrong having seen them growing naturally in Australia.
Some plants don't travel well, except as curiosities. Leave them in Thailand.
