Phalaenopsis Orchid #1 in bloom  
Well, slowly going into bloom. This is the one I got for my last birthday and most of its flower buds fell off as it was struggling to acclimate at home (we didn't have this problem with the next two orchids). Then it went into bloom again last summer, and I never got around to posting any of those photos.

It hasn't opened any more flowers in the last two days - I blame that on the dark cloudy weather.

I've had four orchids; one actually lasted two years, the others didn't last past the initial blooming.

These aren't difficult to grow.

Once again, the Lada make a very neutral background for the blooms....
