When you can’t go out because your car’s possessed by the devil, photograph a Phalaenopsis that you bought for your cousin Mary’s visit next Friday! She’s from Palm Beach Florida and loves orchids.
I love the word “Phalaenopsis”. This orchid is also called a “moth orchid” because the flowers resemble the shape of a moth or butterfly.
They are easy to grow, long bloomers, and have a name that suggests complexity.
Long live Phalaenopsis-sizzzzz.
Plural of Phalaenopsis is not so easy to say.
