Unusual Phalaenopsis orchid hybrids you see all the time some amazing colors and patterns, it was a lovely surprise for me to see this green one last weekend, as I always think ahead this make the perfect post for today,

***To all my Irish friends Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As you know the biggest Parade in the world is in New York City,

That day we all are Irish and drink that Green Beer:-)

I am very proud of this orchid; we got it when it wasn't flowering or even in bud and it has rewarded my patience with this lovely blossom that came out as the New Year came in.


And one of my Phalaenopsis is gracing me with blossoms as well!


Subfamily: Epidendroideae Genus: Phalaenopsis Species: Phalaenopsis amabilis [L.] Blume 1825. Common name: The Lovely Phalaenopsis or Moon orchid.

Phalaenopsis orchid. This orchid spray looks like a graceful flower arrangement, hence my title. "Ikebana" is from the Japanese ikeru (生ける?, "keep alive, arrange flowers, living")and hana (華?, "flower").

Early in April our Executive Director called me into her office to see the orchid she had been given. So lovely I asked her if I could photograph it. The picture above was taken at that time. Just a few days later she called me into her office again. She said, "I found an orchid just like mine and want to give it to you" and she handed it to me. I was, well, blown away! The pictures I've posted before ~ they're of the orchid she gave me. I can't stop looking at this extraordinary creation!

The Phalaenopsis orchid is commonly known as the moth orchid as the flowers are borne on slender arching stems and the the white ones do look like moths in mid flight.

I have a habit of sometimes "nicknaming" my plants. I have a palm tree that has narrow, long red leaves - he's Spike. One of my other orchids (it's common name is Mini-mark) and I call him Marky-Mark. Tiger Lily sprung to mind for this new acquisition I got at the SOOS orchid event at the Toronto Botanical Gardens in February this year.

Let me start by saying my fingers are far from green. Having said that, my lovely Phalaenopsis Orchid has been thriving in its corner of the room.

Apparently a Hybrid, its yellow flower with vivid red spots are a mix of Taipei Gold and Amboinensis. The Phalaenopsis family is one of the most popular with approximately 60 species.


Gotta love Google :)


For those of you interested, the bokeh was "created" by spraying water on to the window behind.

I was given this beautiful Orchid as a gift from a lovely florist friend of ours earlier on in the year. This flower gave me many days of joy. Sadly its time came to an end :(.


Please Enjoy :D

Another of my home grown Phals. I love the purity and the light and those lovely little wispy tails.

This Saturday has been a real grey experience. Even my beautiful orchids looks greyish. How I miss the soft lights of spring when the blanket of grey leaves and is replaced with lovely sunshine. No more thousand shades of grey or brown, I want spring to arrrive! /A


Camera Nikon D3200, AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G.

At the recent Kenya Orchid Show in Nairobi, they were also selling some Orchids.

This lovely specimen was bought and taken home and has now bloomed beautifully and was photographed last weekend at home.

To all my lovely friends on the Utata staff, I thank you from the bottom of my (slightly banged-up, soon-to-be-refurbished) heart.


An utterly lush and gorgeous Phalaenopsis orchid arrived on my doorstep today from the good people of Utata, who have already contributed to saving my life some 6 years ago by helping me find my passion for photography.


I promise to do my utmost to keep both the orchid and myself alive to see another day.


Thank you again for being just otterly fantastic in every way.



Thank you all so much for your kind comments and awards on my stream this week Anita


This lovely orchid was found in our sunday visit to the garden centre on our way home from church.I was so glad I had a camera with me.

*Also, I will be gone through Saturday on a camping excursion. :)

On it's second phase of flowering. It's got 12 flower heads out and 3 more to come on this stem. I've also got a new stem growing up as well. I've never had one that's done this well before.

Phalaenopsis, of Moth Orchid, from my garden. These blooms are from last year, but she is putting out a lovely spike now and I can't wait for the next show.

Another closeup taken to illustrate the lovely translucency of the flower...

I have not taken many flowers photos in a while so I visited the U.S. Botanical Gardens today. What an incredible orchid collection they have! This phalaenopsis (I think!) was so lovely I took picture after picture. A great way to start the new year looking at nature's wonders.

Best seen on black: press L to view.

I have been growing this lovely miniature orchid for four years. While I do like vandaceous orchids quite a bit, my true love is angraecoid species. Superficially the vandaceous Microsaccus griffithii brings together aspects of both, nearly passing for the charming Angraecum distichum, only it's a bit smaller in all dimensions and lacks spurs or scent. It is Native to Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Peninsular Malaysia, the islands of Borneo, Java, Sumatra (Indonesia), and the Philippines. Its 2mm tiny crystalline white flowers always appear in pairs, squeezed in tight between the undersides of its fleshy leaves that have a 12mm spread.


The longest stem on my plant is currently 6cm. It did have a much longer stem (8cm) that I had to shorten by 4cm for when I conducted comprehensive double-well ELISA testing for pathogenic orchid viruses after a scare when I discovered that I had been sold asymptomatic infected Phalaenopsis, plants which I had grown in proximity to my Microsaccus. Thankfully these didn't infect this or most of the plants in my collection, but the comprehensive testing was expensive and fraught. When it comes to collecting tissue samples from miniature plants such as this, it really sucks to have to remove a 4cm stem section!

A friend of mine gave me a little shoot from one of her plants. After about 6-8 months of babying, I have four shoots now and these lovely Dendrobium Flowers. Just a little plant, I am encouraged that it will continue to prosper.

I am usually a phalaenopsis orchid lover and have had success with these orchids. This is my first try at a Dendrobium.

Taken with my new 85 mm Nikkor Macro objective :-) Enjoy! /A

A lovely gift from Jacqui and Mark

These lovely purple Phalaenopsis Orchids are from my hubby for Mother's Day ~


Happy Mother's Day ~


Mother's Day




Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the person, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father's Day, Siblings Day, and Grandparents Day.


In the United States, celebration of Mother's Day began in the early 20th century.

. . . another happy day, now that this lovely Phalaenopsis temple cloud has flowered again :)
