This is a discussion on My Miltassia Shelob Red Spider is Finally Red within the Orchids of Other Genera IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; I never knew why it was called 'Red Spider' until a couple of days ago. ...
I never knew why it was called 'Red Spider' until a couple of days ago. As the blooms have matured and are preparing to fall they have become very deep red. You can see the difference between the blooms of the old spike and the new spike.
It seems kind of stange to name them after the color they turn when they're dying.. but I do love those blossoms! Can't grow them worth a darn, but love to look at them.
