Now for something different. My yard looks like spring every day of the year. This orchid has bloomed for the last six weeks, The flower lasts only one day but the plant sends up new flowers every few days. My problem with this plant is getting the correct name. The genus is full of mistakes or unknowns. My plant doesn't have a full name, but if you look at a group of flowers from this one plant you would think that the flowers are not related. to see the variations go to: http://togofcoralgables.com/Sobralia.aspx Scroll down the page and see the variations in this flower.
