    Default Brasilorchis schunkeana-"Black" Orchid

    Probably the closest you will find to a black orchid species. It is actually dark purple. Very uniquely beautiful orchid.

    Hi Susan,

    I looked at your image attachment in your post and from the URL it says you used 'PicResize' website to resize your image. Their policy is that you must download the image after resizing it and then upload it where you want to share it as an attachment, not use their url of the image. On their website it states below any resized image "Images are automatically deleted."

    Cheers,
    BD
