    Default New phaleonopsis beauty

    I had to go to grocery store 2 days ago and was surprised to see a table full of orchids there. They had the store logo on them and fertilizer so it must be a new feature for them. Not a bad price and they looked healthy. I couldn`t resist this Sinica Cherry! Very deep colors in the blooms. The other plant is called a ground orchid. My wife just put 3 of them in new garden area we are building in one corner of the backyard. 25'x32' area that I will not have to mow anymore. It works for me. lol

    Beautiful Phal. The plant you called a ground orchid is a Spathoglottis (maybe Plicata)

    I hope you will share more photos of the Spathoglottis as it matures in your garden!

    Cheers,
