What is this answer

As promised, I would post the answer to the "What is this?" post. I have to admit, that you are all so good at this! I guess I have to find another macro shot that is more challenging! Maybe I will find something interesting to photograph this weekend for a nice extreme macro shot!

So, yes, the shot was of one of my orchids. Specifically a phalaenopsis intergenic hybird: Doritaenopsis Newberry Parfait 'Picotee'.

My husband loves orchids. He has a "starter orchid" right now. He bought it on sale. It had already bloomed in the store well before we purchased it and they had pruned it. We have no idea what color it is yet. We've been told that orchids don't bloom a second time, so we may never see it. The leaves are still pretty and it's a good practice orchid for him.

Although he has quite the green thumb, orchids make him nervous.

I have been growing orchids for about 15 years and I can tell you that they DO bloom again and again and again if given proper care. I would be happy to give any orchid care advice if the need arises. Also, if your husband loves orchids, perhaps joining a local orchid society would be helpful. I did a long time ago and it was a tremendous help to my skills. Good luck with the orchid!
