Lime Tinted Phalaenopsis

By Noddyboy
A Lime Tinted Phalaenopsis that has this year excelled itself for flowers, it really is a lovely Orchid considering its first year it had 1 bloom but this one has 26 but they wont all flower at the same time but it will be nice to see new blooms for some time yet.I am sorry I am rambling now! Regards Richard.

Beautiful flower and well taken. Lovely detailed shot. I have one orchid that I'm very pleased has flowered again. I'm amazed by how long the flowers last on them.

Thanks for the nice comments Will & Freda and yes Orchids are wonderful subjects to photograph but easy to grow,well Phalaenopsis are and Cymbidiums left out over the summer period till the first cold weather then bring them inside as they need a cold spell to force flowers.Once you start to appreciate the many different colours, shades that are out there it becomes quite addictive and hard not to pass them by.To see them flower the following year you know you are not overwatering and water them with rainwater unless you are near a power station wear it has an effect on the atmosphere weird but true making the rainwater more acidic? Our own Wild Orchids are minature versions of their tropical brothers and just as beautiful you just have to get down a bit lower and careful where you kneel.I can ramble about Orchids allnight as I love them.My wife and I are going to Rhodes Island Greece for 2 -3 weeks next spring to photograph the many different types of Orchid that grow in profusion and being out of season is cheaper than staying in the UK which does not make sense,a sad fact but true!Sorry for rambling on!Regards Richard.

Thank you for the nice comments Jennnnn and Hilary. I have just got a Vanda Orchid but to be truthful I dont think I can replicate the conditions needed for it to flower again (constant 75f and 100% humidity) but it seems to be thriving in this weather so if it does flower it really is an absolute stunner with racemes of bright Orange flowers cascading down from the plant on a coathanger twisted to form a rig for the roots to hang from. I am keeping my fingers crossed!Regards Thanks for the info on the website Hilary I am thinking about it but my son has been paid to for it but my hopes are fading fast.Thanks again Hilary.
