    Default Dendrobium spurium and Aeschynanthus radicans

    Dendrobium spurium is one of those orchids that bloom soon after heavy rains. Aeschenanthus radicans is of course not an orchid, but I had it for a photo subject because of the tactile qualities. I included an opened bloom follow-up shot, but I like the unopened shot better.




    Also known as the lipstick plant.
