I’m sorry, I can’t understand how someone could imagine a blue version would be an improvement … :) Reply I agree! Some of the hybridizing and manipulations in the flower world are ridiculous! Take a look at this crazy thing! I never would’ve thought it a tulip!!! Reply Monstrosity :) Ah there it is! and apart from the blue leaves it looks exactly like the one in my kitchen. These are the main variety we can get here and of course only survive indoors. Reply They’re really pretty, yeah? I like the pure white alot! I’m new to orchid growing and only recently learned that phals will rebloom within 8-12 weeks if you cut the spike below the spot where the last flower grew. It’s best to leave two nodes (the brownish lines) on the stem for better odds: one of them should initiate some new growth leading to flowers! I’m DEF trying this after the flowers die! Reply Reblogged this on My Blog spiritandanimal.wordpress.com. Reply WOW! want all my friends to see this photo! Hilarious! Makes me happy! Reply Thank you! and the reblogging is appreciated, too! Reply Beautiful. It glows! Reply I know, right? It really is a bright white in person, as well as on the screen! Reply Lovely orchid. It’s so elegant. :) Reply So much nicer than if it was blue! Reply Beautiful! Reply Thank you :) Reply Beautiful. White color interprets peace. So I hope this flower is going to bring lots of peace to you! :) Reply Hi Arindam, peaceful is a perfect description for orchids. They definitely exude a serenity with their quiet beauty. :) Reply Beautiful, just beautiful ! Reply Thanks, Claire! :) Reply Stunning! ;-) Reply Thank you!
