The Moth Orchid

Look what my older Phalenopsis orchid has done!  It's never bloomed like this before.  The blossoms are huge.

The last time this orchid bloomed, and the last time I posted a photo about it - just after I started this blog last Fall, the blooms immediately started to turn yellow and drop.  I hope I haven't doomed the pretty thing again.  I think, though, that I've finally figured this particular plant out.  It is very, very fussy about temperature.


  1. Oh wow. That's absolutely stunning Kathy. My own "focus" has been on photographing our own increasingly rare native orchids here in Minnesota.

  2. Thanks tb. Alas, we don't have native orchids right around my area.
