My orchid came into bloom yesterday and there are many more buds to open..I just love orchids and luckily for me they like neglect ;) lol I hope you all enjoy this white beauty.

 

"Structure of orchid flowers

Orchid flowers consist of:

• the pedicel (the stem of the flower which includes the ovary),

• the sepals,

• the petals,

• the column.

Sepals and petals are in threes.

The three sepals consist of the dorsal sepal and two lateral sepals.

The three petals consist of two petals and a modified one called the labellum, or more commonly, the lip."
