The Moth Flower

This orchid is Phalaenopsis Aphrodite, commonly known as the moth orchid. 


 

I have had this plant for six years and it blooms every year. 

 

Usually, some of the buds will bloom and others will not open until the first blooms die. This year, all of the buds opened simultaneously, so the plant is loaded with blooms.

 

Have a pleasant Sunday and a great week.

  4. It's beautiful. I have an orchid a granddaughter gave me at least five years. It grows a new stalk and blooms every year--except the year the cat broke off the stalk. I don't remove the old stalks either, except one that turned brown and withered.
