Is this a Moth Orchid?
There are some things in life that are just too amazing and beautiful for words.
I think Mother Nature took her time and put everything she had into creating orchids.
When I look at this orchid I am mesmerised by its beauty. It only flowers for me every two years but the wait is so worthwhile.
The orchid was given to us as a house-warming present five years ago and to tell you the truth I didn't know too much about growing orchids, and still don't. But I did know that they like dappled shade so I tied the orchid to a lovely old grapefruit tree that we have growing in the garden and I wrapped "Grandad's Beard" all around the roots, and that's it! No soil, no fertiliser it just blooms.
I have no idea what this orchid is called and would really love someone to leave a comment to let me know what it is.
