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!
Orchidworks had a deal for 5 of these plants for $25. When we checked to see what these plants were (the name didn’t ring a bell) I got so excited to see that they’re the terrestrial orchids that grew everywhere back home in the Philippines!
