Alien Orchid Evolves


I highlighted this amazing blossom awhile back. I marveled that a plump bud was opening on a plant that took 2 years to bloom. A few days after I present the early photos, the flower opened a bit further and is presently looking a bit more like a standard alien orchid instead of that more otherworldly look it first presented.

So sorry, I still haven't taken time to research more info, like the name of the flower, promised earlier but hey, if any orchid experts happen to pass through here....do tell!!

Happy Weekend all!

Great picture. The flower talks - it talks loudly. So you lighted up the grateful smile on Tomas' sketchbook. Thank you.
