Apr. 3, 2014: Proper picture of the beautiful Odon. Papageno ‘Mi Amour’
Mar. 30, 2014 [update]: The flowers of Odon. Papageno ‘Mi Amour’ turned out more purple/pink after a few days! Fascinating transformation!
Mar. 26, 2014 [update]: The Odon. Papageno ‘Mi Amour’ bloomed and the flower looks a little different from the picture we got off the Internet. Our flower is less pink/purple, more white.
Mar. 14, 2014: We’ve been excitedly waiting for our Phal. equestris to bloom. It would be perfect timing too since the Michigan Orchid Society meeting is scheduled for this weekend and it would be awesome to bring such a pretty Phalaenopsis species for show and tell. The first bud opened earlier this week and unfortunately, it’s not actually a Phal. equestris. Still a beautiful flower tho.
Larry took a trip back to Larry’s Orchids and Tropicals to see if all the Phal. equestris there turned out the same way ours did. We were hoping that there were real ones that we can get. Unfortunately, the whole lot was mislabeled.
Larry’s Orchids Larry was gracious enough to offer us a refund which we turned down since it’s not his fault (it was mislabeled by his supplier). He did give Larry a great discount for the new purchases we made this trip.
Orchid count: #85-87
