    Default Hawaiian Passion Carmela

    Here's a Catt that opened up this morning.
    The petals stays mostly green but tends to turn yellowish as it ages.
    The fragrance is wonderful.

    This cutting came from a neighbors yard where she just throws orchids in a planter area by her driveway. She doesn't even bother to cover them. When she's done enjoying her orchids and thinks that they're beyond saving. She takes them out of the pot and throws them in this area.

    Sometimes they survive and sometimes they don't. This one did and grew pretty large, and this is a division from it.

    LOL Taci, she's not into orchids. She's a pretty young thing and she always receives orchids as gifts. She keeps them inside the house until they no longer have flowers or they're dying from neglect. She has a side strip that separates her driveway from my ex-wife's yard where her hubby planted some small mock orange. The strip is also covered with pea gravel, and that's where she dumps the orchid carcasses.

    But then again this is KAUAI where it rains almost daily (that's why it's called the Garden Island) in the mornings which are keeping some of the dumped orchids from completely drying out and dying. .. and because of the rains, some are growing. LOL!

    Wow that little strip of pea gravel would be like manna from heaven for me. I have yet to find a single friend or neighbors who needs me to rescue their orchid.
