Two Latest Bloomers

These two orchids are our latest to bloom. What makes these two so special is that the plant is less than two inches tall and we only paid $5 each for these two at a going out of business sale. All the orchids that we bought at this sale are doing well and most have bloomed for us. This one has seven blooms coming.






The bloom is a blend of so many colours yellow, brown, purple, pink, white just to name a few.



This last one has a funny bloom that has never opened fully even though it has been in flower for two months.

Oh my god, those are real!!! Beautiful. I had purchased three orchids, but the winters in my apartment are very dry and only one survived. Yes, I had humidifiers going and when I remembered I even sprayed them, but it didn't work. I will keep working on the one, but it goes, that's it! Two expensive otherwise. I am jealous...!!
