Jul. 4, 2015 [update]: The Spathoglottis plicata var. alba plants are tucked at a corner of our deck that is usually out of our line of sight when we’re out there. We were so pleasantly surprised to see it’s been blooming happily.

May 29, 2015: The Orchidworks Tantalizing Tuesdays email this week had some interesting plants available so we sent in our order to our little orchid buying group Tuesday evening itself. We never expected the plants to arrive so quickly!

Phal. violacea var. coerulea 'Bredren's Blue Boy' x Phal. violacea 'Bredren's Magenta'This is a picture of one of our Phal. violaceas. There doesn’t seem to be such a thing as “v. red” but that’s what was on the plant tag so we’ll go with it.
