Size:  27.6 KBHello
    I got an orchid as a present today (people realized I am an orchidnut so they give orchids as gifts)
    So, it has one unusual flower
    I wonder if it is an isolated accident or it will have similar blooms in the future too
    here is the photo- I call it conjoined twins bloom( one can see I am a doctor)

    My guess is that it is probably just a 1-time quirk, but only time will tell. Meantime, you can enjoy twice the beauty!
