Oncidium Heaven Scent 'Redolence' is in bloom

 I purchased this Oncidium Heaven Scent ‘Redolence’ plant from Gold Country Orchids at the San Jose Orchid Exposition in the first week of June 2015.  It sits in the upper shelf of the east window of the orchid room, and seems to like it there.   26 more words

Hoa Phong Lan Vũ Nữ

Hoa Phong Lan Vũ Nữ

Loài hoa phong lan Vũ Nữ có tên gọi thật “lả lơi”, đầy mê hoặc. Sở dĩ loài Lan này có tên gọi như vậy bởi lẽ tất cả những gì chúng gợi lên trong mắt người nhìn chính là những cánh hoa như như những cô gái xòe váy đong đưa, rập rờn trong gió chẳng khác gì những vũ công đang trình diễn trên bầu trời riêng của mình. 710 more words

Oncidium in formation

This stem of Oncidium orchids reminds me of choreographed dancers that are all in line one in front of the other and that fan out on cue.

Oncidium Wildcat 'Yellow'

I’ve often come upon a species of butterfly that I’ve never seen before when I visit butterfly exhibits but not so much with orchids.  I’m starting to get the hang of the names of the orchids when their show returns here each year.   18 more words
